I got a new pup from the pound
He's an adorable hound
So far he is sound
I walk him around the park
We have such a lark

I accidentally dropped his lead
I swear I've never seen such speed
He was gone like lightning
It was quite frightening
I spent over an hour
The park I did scour

I finally gave up
Stopped looking for the pup
Got home there he is sitting on the welcome mat
What could I do but grumble and give him a pat
