Let’s End This Excessive Devotion to Dogs

 

By Elton Camp

 

Owning some dogs can be okay,

But it’s “fur children,” some say

If a dog you think is your child,

Then rightly you will be reviled

 

Over your home you have the say

Sensible folks can just stay away

It’s up to you if it does please

To live in horrid stench and fleas

 

To the odor, your nose is numb

But others smell it if they come

You accept dog hair everywhere

On clothes, it’s welcome there

 

It’s all right if you live that way

At your house the dog should stay

Come to visit, your beast in tow

To answer the door, I will not go

 

Then there’s savage dog attack

Good sense the owners lack

“He’s never bitten anyone before”

It’s a lie we hear more and more

 

Brutus is vicious as he can be

It’s obvious for everyone to see

The dog should be killed without fail

And his owner then sentenced to jail

 

But realize that dogs I don’t hate

It’s the fanatical owners I berate

A dog is just fine in its place

But how some do is a disgrace
