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
