A Dog In The House

 

A Dog in the House

 

By Elton Camp

 

Visitors know he’s there when they enter the door

For there’s a rank odor that they’ve smelled before

 

It’s one that only a fanatical dog lover could please

A powerful mixture of dog food, urine and feces

 

The next thing that hapless visitors won’t believe

Those small, brown, jumping insects on their sleeve

 

Then there is Fido himself, on the couch making a bed

“Please come in and have a seat,” the dog owner said

 

After pushing aside a dirty blanket, they sit down

But the wonderful Fido soon comes looking around

 

The filthy varmint gives an unexpected jump

Right into the horrified visitor’s lap, kerplunk

 

The visitor screams and tries to push Fido away

“He wants to give you a kiss,” the owner will say

 

The visitors remember the need to be somewhere

And that they have but a few minutes to get there

 

But reminders of precious Fido they don’t lack

His hairs on their clothes, both front and back
