I ran across this old poem today ... no idea who wrote it ... thought I'd share it with you all
  
Runt

A farmers dog came into town
his christian name was Runt
A noble pedigree he had
so please oblige his stunt
And as he trotted down the street
'twas beautiful to see
His work on every corner
his work on every tree
~
He watered every gateway too
and never missed a post
For piddling was his specialty
for piddling was his boast
The city currs trooped on amazed
with deep and zealous rage
To see a simple country dog
the piddler of the age

Then all the dogs from everywhere
were summoned by a yell
To sniff the country stranger o're
to judge him by his smell
Some thought that he a king might be
beneath his tail a rose
So every city dog drew near
and sniffed him up his nose
~
They smelled him over one by one
they smelled him two by two
And noble Runt in high distain
stood still till they were through
Then just to show the whole shebang
he didn't give a dam
He trotted to the grocery store
and piddled on the ham

He piddled on a mackeral keg
he piddled on the floor
And when the grocer kicked him out
he piddled through the door
Behind him all the city dogs
lined up with instinct true
To start a piddling carnival
to see the stranger through
~
They showed him every piddling post
they had in all the town
And started in with many a wink
to pee the stranger down
They sent for champion piddlers
who were always on the go
Who sometimes did a piddling stunt
or gave a piddling show

They sprung this on him suddenly
when midway in the town
Runt only smiled and polished off
the ablest white or brown
For Runt was with them every trick
with vigor and with vim
A thousand piddlers more or less
were all the same to him
~
But on and on went noble Runt
as wet as any rill
When all the champion city pups
were pee'd to a stand still
Then Runt did free hand piddling
with fancy flirts and frills
Like double dip and gimlet twist
and all those graceful things

And all the time this country dog
did never wink or grin
But piddled as blithly out of town
as he piddled when he came in
The city dogs convention held
to ask what did defeat us
But no one ever put them wise
That Runt had Diabetes

I just have to say that this made me laugh really hard and I needed that laugh. Thanks!!

 You don't know me, but you don't like me.
You say you could care less how I feel.
But how many of you who sit and judge me
have ever walked the streets in my shoes?-Korn

I'm glad everyone enjoyed this poem
It was probably written over fifty years ago
by the age of the book wense it came
Too bad the the author couldn't get some recognition ... oh well ... one last fling before it goes back to the mercy of the dust bunnies
