A Dog in the House

By Elton Camp

We knew the minute we went in the door

From a rank odor we had smelled before

Few odors are more repulsive than these

It's a mixture of urine and canine feces

Stenches that normal humans can't abide

Yet ones that Lori doesn't attempt to hide

At her house odor, she may be surprised

Perhaps her nose has become desensitized

We both wonder what Lori would think

If we say, "Your house sure does stink."

We are just a bit tempted to try it,

But suspect she's angrily deny it

She regards her mutt as a child

Speak against it and she gets riled

So we warily look around

For a place we can sit down

But dog hair coats every chair

Brown and yellow here & there

"I'll get Bruiser to give you a kiss," she said

While she went for him, we quickly fled
