Highway Horace

I am HighwayHorace your hero dog
I prowl the area at night
Chasing away the naughty cats
Who wake children up when they fight

I woof at the burglars making sure
Your all safe whilst your asleep
Before going home to my own kennel
To dream of meaty bones and treats

I follow the children when the leave
to go to school each day
Making sure they walk not run
Plus on the pavements stay

I make them stop at every kerb
Look right and left and right
No cars coming then you can cross
Safely  without a fright

Am always here, waiting for the call
A dangerous incident has occurred
Two little boys on their bicycles are about
Recklessly riding not afeared

I jump in front of them making them turn
Woofing at them to behave and home to stay
Pavements belong to everyone, so use them
safely with care the HighwayHorace way.

Motto is 
Remember the Highway Code and be safe.
