Phoenix the dawg

Phoenix the dawg

There in my yard is a dawg name 
One stubborn black bitch
Easily identified by her signature hind 
Now, is not that she's without redeeming qualities
But that dawg no matter how you call har 
she seems hard of hearing
While it well known that's a choice she is making
Cause the merest sound har ear perk,
she jump up and start barking
Phoenix the real mix I love to say 
But jah know, dis dawg personify 
the adjective play
I leave her sometimes under a mango 
tree loosely chain 
Where her kennel is to cover her when 
it rain
A piece of work she is even when she is 
on rein 
Cause har mouth nuh cry quit, she get wey under mi van already and bite the wiring to 
total disarray
Yet, phoenix is a unique dawg, 
black as midnight with a face like a
happy smile....wg
