Hound Most Renowned Nursery Rhyme

A man, quite renowned, came into our town; He tried to expound on matters profound. He frowned when he found as he tried to expound: drowned by the sound of a hound in the town. This was indeed a hound most renowned! The sound from this hound, when on a rebound, knocks a man down in a mound on the ground. He looked all 'round: northbound, southbound, eastbound, westbound. Nowhere he looked could that loud sound be found: the fairground, the playground, the foreground, the background. Finally he found himself down at the pound. A foxhound, a coonhound, a bloodhound, a greyhound: all of these hounds could be found at the pound, but none of the hounds made that kind of sound. A boy came around and said while he frowned, his puppy was wound up, would not settle down. "Your little dog too! Ha, ha," he clowned. A little chihuahua made all of that sound? Well, he dropped his jaw when he heard the chihuahua. Now, he expounds on this hound most renowned. ----------
