I run to greet her every day,
My face in wild elation.
I never fail to wag my tail
In hopeful expectation.

I follow her around the house.
Where she goes, there I'll be.
A simple pet is all I get
But that's enough for me.

What she desires is good by me.
If she throws, I'll play fetch.
Whatever game is hers to name;
If she runs, I'll play catch.

I only ask for tender words,
Someone to understand.
A gentle touch would mean so much-
I'd be hers to command.

But she has not been good to me.
She seldom wants to play.
Sometimes she's gone all night 'til dawn
To where? She doesn't say.

Now she's been gone for three whole days!
This is my epilogue.
It is no life to have a wife
Who treats you like a dog.

I'm sure you get a wet nose put in your hand every time...

You've had it all wrong, my sweet pup.....
What you really need instead of a wife (or was that a MissTress?), is a compupion.....
