“My Dog Jed” by Margaret Pearce

My dog Jed

Is never trouble

What killed that hen

Was his double.


This Jack Russell terror

Known as Jed

Into mischief and error

Is never led.


My dog Jed

With teeth so white

Doesn’t chase cats

Who want to fight.


My dog Jed

So loyal and sweet

Not near the bed

With its ripped sheet.


My dog Jed

Is very athletic

Running ahead

To beat the traffic.


My dog Jed

So very good

Turns up to be fed

When he should.


My dog Jed

Is never blue

As around he’s led

To sniff quoll poo.


My dog Jed

Is not argumentative

And can’t be said

To be offensive.


My dog Jed

Doesn’t cause trouble

Damage alleged

Was caused by his double.


My dog Jed

Loves to roam

Is selectively deaf

About coming home.


My dog Jed

So very courageous

In disgrace in the shed

I think it’s outrageous
