In the Doghouse


You call him to come and he acts as if he’s deaf
Or doesn’t understand the command
Give him the task to fetch your slippers
Bring you the morning newspaper
Simple things to do
Suddenly he’s stuck with the mentality of being two
Pat him on the head for the good deeds he performs
Swat him on the ass when he goes and pees in a corner
Rub his nose in his wrong doings
Scold him tell him he has been a bad boy
Sometimes you want to throw your hands up in frustration
Send him off to obedient school
Maybe they will be able to teach him
What you’ve been trying too
Your orders don’t
Seem to register in his brain
When he’s happy he’ll lick your face
Rub up against you showing you his affection
Then run off and get with another bitch
Goes to show he has no discrimination in his
Soul he’ll hump anything that has four legs and a tail
Here you are back to square one
What to do when a dog doesn’t listen
Pack up his doggy bone
Change the locks on his doghouse
Go out and find a dog that will obey
Your every wish and not give a
Second, look at that other bitch
