Book 16 Page 10


Oh I wish I was a dog


Oh I wish I was a dog,

that would really be swell.

Walking around all day

enjoying all the smells.


Getting my food supplied,

wouldn’t have to lift an eye.

Wouldn’t it be a dream and a hope

to get groomed and patted and affectionately stroked?


It would be so relaxing being a dog,

human life is so much faster.

O I wish I was a dog

instead of being master.
