A Dog of Few Words

A clerk said, 'Next in line - this way.'
A dog spoke up, 'I guess I am.'
'What can we do for you today? '
'I want to send a telegram.'
The clerk handed the dog a note.
'You'll have to write it out somehow.'
The dog took pen in teeth and wrote,
'Bow wow wow, bow wow wow, bow wow.'
The clerk read what the dog had penned.
'One to ten words have the same fees.'
'There's eight words now, so you can send'
'Another 'bow wow' if you please.'

'No, ' the dog said, 'Just between us, '
'One more would sound ridiculous.'

    This is nonsense, but it's great.
    That form you use is very effective, gives your pieces a 'punchline' feel, although the punchline may not be funny at all (like in 'Crow Heart' or 'Mystery Plain') .
    Also, the use of classical 'a/b/a/b' rhyme sounds extremely good, in a no-frills, straight-to-the-point sort of way.
