A Dog’s Life - Poem by Alan Bruce Thompson

It’s not bad being a dog, this time around,
As long as I live in a happy home and not in the pound.

Being born again was just my luck,
But a dogsbody is better than an elephant, a donkey, or a woodchuck!

I’m lucky that I look really cute as a pup,
And belong to a breed that looks good even when grown up.

I’m an even-tempered breed and never get angry,
I don’t yap or slobber, nor look always hungry.

I have a pleasant fur, a marvelous coat,
I look like a dog, not a mouse nor a goat.

To come back next time as a human would be very mundane,
I’d much rather come back to the world as this dog again.
