A Dog Brings Hope

Written by: Reason A. Poteet

The other dogs, not a one was lame,
they called me "Hobble" cause I limp.
I am hoping you will change my name.
No dog  wants to be called a gimp.

I can walk, just don't run very fast
Here’s hoping you don't have a cat.
When it comes to chewing, I'm the best;
I have caused some problems with that.

Say you'll keep me, I'll be friends with you
if you  have a cat, I'll learn to cope.
Maybe you can teach me not to chew;
I can teach you lots about hope.
