A Hard Dog To Keep On The Porch
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

In these days approaching the millenium
the world is all in a fog.
The world is fast a'changing
and the days are going to the dogs.

It's a dog eat dog world...
and the reasons are clear.
If you continue to chase tail
you'll only get bitten in the rear.

Turn your growl into
something with more bite.
Chomp down on the hand that feeds you
and then you'll get it right.

That's the way it seems
the dog is one big louse.
Shorten the chain on the critter
and send him back to the doghouse.

"Bill is a hard dog to keep
on the porch."
If Hillary said it,
then she must carry her torch.

Perhaps he would
have been cuter...
if he'd have come
with a certificate to neuter !

We could all take a crash course in neutering and volunteer our services for the 'greater good' ! This was a riot!

Appears that THAT dog is woman's best friend. If he had served in the military he would be a cur-nel by now!

Marge you do have such a sense of humor!

My dog is sweet
he's never mean
He stays at home
doesn't want to roam

I thought him manners
from the start
in love you class
they give out heart
