The Dog

The dog with short black fur The dog with brown eyes The dog with a curly black tail The dog with a pushed-in nose The dog that runs with a limp The dog that sleeps outside my door The dog that tries to catch birds The dog that hurts in the winter The dog that loves tail rubs The dog that watches for crumbs The dog that will eat anything The dog that is six feet under The dog that has broken my heart
