My Dog Ate My Homework

My dog ate my homework
He doesn't know what he's done
He's forced me to defend myself 

With what is essentially a pun

I asked him why'd he do it 

He started licking his butt

It angered me more 

This non-explanation 

For my rut

I yelled at him fiercely 

Coupled with a mean stare

He cocked up his leg 

And peed on the chair

I asked him 

Hadn't I always given him?

Chicken soup for the soul 

He barked at me once 

Then pushed forward his bowl

I told him 

This was unacceptable behavior 

And I would put away 


His leash with "Sparky" 

Monikered strap

He jumped up on my sofa 


And settled in for 

His mid-morning nap
