“This man About Town” by Margaret Pearce

In an urban residence

Lurks that animal of leisure

Barks work is for peasants

Life is for pleasure.


A beautiful Border Collie

From a hard working breed

Sneers chasing sheep a folly

A hard way to get a feed.


He wears his devotion

And his loyalty so fair

And his loving emotion

With an elegant air.


Always complacent

And so very smug

The most perfect mate

To accept a hug.


Why be judgemental 

That he prefers to play

He’s worth the rental

So around he will stay.
