WHY WON’T WE GET A DOG?

I don’t want to cause a spat,

But we’d prefer a cat…

Indoor is fine

With litter box time,

We’re quite content with that!

A dog we’d have to walk,

In all kinds of weather and glop…

Cannot he

Be trained to pee

On a mat–the messes won’t stop?

My wife barely walks on her own,

She’d have a hard time while alone…

While I’m employed

We’d rather avoid,

A dog who’d be stuck at home!

We’d love him–what if he barks,

In our neighborhood, there’d be sparks!

Howling’s “verbotten”*

We’d be toting

Him off to lose steam in parks.

–Jonathan caswell

*verbottenn…German (I think) for “forbidden”
