Funny Poem a Day: A Walk in the Park, by Sally Wiltshire

So here is Lola, looking muddy after a walk in the park… actually not as muddy as he has been, she can completely change colour to dark brown! She definitely loves rolling in dirt… so I was thrilled to receive this poem, kindly sent by Sally Wiltshire (thank you, Sally), which is PERFECT – I have often had to attach Lola to a lead when, er, well, read on…!

 

A Walk In The Park

 

Dog’s out walking,

dog is good,

strutting round

the neighbourhood.

Dog’s excited

nears the park;

can’t resist

a cocky bark.

Dog’s impatient

picks up speed,

yanks the human

with the lead.

Dog is running

very fast,

off the bloomin’

lead at last.

Spots some fun,

puts on a spurt,

Dog is rolling

in the dirt.

Dog is stinking

pleased as punch;

the human has

a nasty hunch.

Hmm

Dog has rolled

in something vile

can smell him coming

from a mile

Dog jogs up,

with tail held high;

human gives

a sorry sigh.

Dog is bad

apparently

although, quite why,

Dog fails to see.

Dog is fastened

to the lead,

sees no problem,

sees no need,

no flippin’ reason,

to be cross;

the stinkier,

the better, Boss.

Don’t she know

a stink is gooooood

when strutting

round the neighbourhood?
