My dog is jealous

My dog is jealous,

of my other dog,

and is also jealous,

of my other other dog.

.

My other dog (the second one)

is jealous of my other other dog,

and also jealous of the first dog in this poem.

My other other dog doesn’t really do jealousy;

but is a quick-moving, lively, active sort…

when there is the prospect of food in the offing.

.

My three dogs are small, medium,

and slightly larger than medium

(but not large).

One is black, one is brown,

the third… has a lack of common sense,

hence we call her Derp –

even though it’s not her actual name.

.

All three get on well together,

and have formed a little circus troupe;

juggling, acrobacy, riding a bicycle backwards, and the like –

can you picture a Dachshund riding a bike?

Anyway, they are all loved and love back,

of canine affection we have no lack.
