A Dog On the Bed

By Elton Camp

Kevin was inordinately fond of his hound

So it was in his bed the canine was found

Even after Kevin got married

Still in the bed the dog tarried

His wife said, "I'm tired of odor and fleas.

Get that dirty mutt off of our bed, please!"

So Kevin reluctantly told his wife okay

But the dog continued sleeping that way

She spit out, "He's more important than me.

So it's in the guest bedroom that I'll be."

"You can come a visit me there,

But don't bring that bag of hair!"

Because the dog scratched with his feet

Kevin's surrender of the bed was complete

To the dog alone the bed was kept

It was on the floor that Kevin slept

His wife ran away with his college friend

Such devotion to a dog his marriage did end
