Quadruple Limerick-THE AUSTRALIAN DINGO

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!

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
