In Praise of Rose, A Bulldog
It’s fair to say that Rose’s face
Is lacking in aesthetic grace;
Her bulging eyes are rimmed with pink,
The folds that frame her flat nose sink
Like brackets round her drooling snout
Where yellow, canine teeth jut out
This fierce visage dates from the day
Her ancestors kept bears at bay
And wrestled bulls to bended knee
Enthralling base humanity.
A patient dog, she’s now the sage
Of a more enlightened age.
Gentle Rose seems not to mind
The child who smacks her stout behind
With innocent, adoring might;
She does not curl her lip to bite
The fingertips that pull her ears
But lovingly licks rueful tears
That fall upon my reprimand
To have a more considerate hand.
