Advice From a Dog ( Nove/Acrostic)

by Everlasting   Feb 9, 2021


Now, cry! Oh, cry! You silly cat
Or chase that rat under the hat
‘Cause they won’t feed you well tonight
Oh, no. They won’t! Said Mister Dog
My master went out for a jog
Must keep in shape for me, his knight.
Earn all you eat by working hard
Now step aside that I’m on guard
Tomorrow you will have to fight.
