One for the dogs


                 The dogs’ disappointment

The dogs on my street bark all day and at night;

Each day brings a repeat; it’s really a blight.


One deputy who came thought he heard a safari;

He drove by the nuisance, wondering, ‘where are we?’


Each dog once had  hoped to have found love unending;

Now all are unwashed, bored, and sad beyond mending.
