Waiter, there's a dog in my soup
I had to share this poem which I ran across while searching for a sample for our May Photo Contest.
There’s a doggy in my soup dish.
There’s a canine in my cup.
The waiter brought a bowl out
and I found this grubby pup.
His fur is simply sopping.
He’s wet from head to toes.
He’s got some peas upon his paws
and noodles on his nose.
He doesn’t look too happy.
His eyes are filled with tears.
Or maybe that’s just chicken soup
that’s dripping from his ears.
I’m sure I asked for noodles.
I got this dog instead.
I wonder how this happened.
Was it something that I said?
I guess I must have mumbled.
I’m such a nincompoop!
It seems the waiter heard me ask for
