A poem about a mischievous dog who fooled his owner
(40 lines)

While in the crate,
Things were great.
He behaved like a prince!
But sadly, not since.

She left him alone,
With a bone.
But what did he do?
He chewed on her shoe.

She told him that's “bad”!
He was sad.
He found out his fate -
Back to the crate!

He appeared contrite.
Was that right?
She took him back out,
He sniffed all around.

Sat by the door,
On the floor.
Quiet as a mouse
So she left the house

Now free to roam
In the home
Soon he got bored,
And pulled out a cord.

The light went out,
He bow-wowed.
The room went dark,
He let out a bark.

Now he was scared,
Sight impaired.
Was it too late
To find his crate?

He sniffed his way back,
Opened the hatch.
He went inside,
Rather than hide.

She called him "Good boy,"
Here's a toy!
A squeaky ball.
Whew! Close call!
