I raised an Australian dingo,
no name came to mind but Ringo;
he jumped on me,
ripped my clothes daily...
it costed me plenty of money!

Only once I left him alone;
good grief... my furniture was torn!
Oh, should I be mad...
or be kind instead?
I'll sleep over it for tonight!

All Ringo did was run, bark and howl,
mistaking a small cat for an owl;
They took him away
to the zoo today;
he'll whimper form his cage, not rest!

I'll take him back, lest he behaves;
his lesson he'll learn:  good manners!
Now, Ringo just stares
to earn forgiveness...
it's fun to play with him and laugh!

    congrats,Andrew. I think it didn't place higher for the last lines not rhyming with the first two lines. You made a cute story though. LUv, Andrea

    Very funny poem, Andrew. And there's nothing wrong with choosing the name Ringo. I knew a "Starr" by that name! Enjoyed the humor, Carolyn
