A Dog of Few Words

by Ima Ryma


A clerk said, 'Next in line - this way.'

A dog spoke up, 'I guess I am.'

'What can we do for you today? '

'I want to send a telegram.'

The clerk handed the dog a note.

'You'll have to write it out somehow.'

The dog took pen in teeth and wrote,

'Bow wow wow, bow wow wow, bow wow.'

The clerk read what the dog had penned.

'One to ten words have the same fees.'

'There's eight words now, so you can send'

'Another 'bow wow' if you please.'

'No, ' the dog said, 'Just between us, '

'One more would sound ridiculous.'
