MY DOG

MY DOG
I trained my dog
To bite my neighbor
I sent him to college
To learn harm my neighbor
A well trained dog
Disappointed my future

I smiled and danced
As I saw his certificate
A first class score
The paper showed
As proud I was
For he was well trained
And made me sure
Of my security at home
A trained dog of mine
Will bite well my neighbor

Five years now
I have neither heard his voice
It never barks these days
It has lost capacity
It’s only work now
Is smiling and laughing     
I’m totally disappointed
With my dog these days
For the dog doesn’t work
Neither protect my home
A stupid dog I trained
Has ruined my plans
For disappointment and allies
To my neighbors and enemies.

    Hello Lucas..wow what a coincidence... you write a poem about your dog and I put one of my dogs pictures here for my soup picture.a few days ago.I enjoyed your poem...I think a dog must be born with..this protective instinct or not..this one in my picture has it for me...he is very protective...maybe you can get a new one...have a good day...donna
