His name was Jimmy

As many dogs in his place were called

His master barked orders at him

Still under the delusion that he was in the army

Jimmy delighted in teasing his mistress,

Who was dreadfully scared of dogs

But the little boy in the house tormented Jimmy

By throwing stones at him

Or pulling his ears

The dog stayed in the house

Only for the girl, who fed him delicacies,

Petted and pampered him


If there was one person Jimmy loathed,

It was Aunt Cheryl,

Who dressed him in red frocks

And tied red ribbons around his tail
