Sit down! Jump up!
Play dead! Hello paws!
What am I? But
a dog whisperer-of course
Play catch! Pick up sticks!
Chase cats! Check out the chicks!
I speak ‘Zeus’ and we
get to play some amazing tricks
Waiting for the postman
Zeus hides in the bushes
And when he says ‘woof’
I jump on postie
from my perch on the roof!
“The dog made me do it!”
is my plea and my entreaty
But the police just sniff
-never believing me
Three arrests later- I’m
ready to jack this job in
(No fair!)
I get all the trouble
while Zeus bounds around – FREE
