Hubbard and her dog

She went to the baker’s

To buy him some bread

But when she got back

The poor dog was dead.

She went to the joiner’s 

To buy him a coffin

But when she got back 

The poor dog was laughing .

She took a clean dish

To get him some tripe,

But when she got back

He was smoking his pipe .

She went to the barber’s

To buy him a wig,

But when she came back

He was dancing a jig .

She went to the alehouse

To buy him some beer,

But when she got back

He sat in a chair .

She went to the tavern

For white wine and red,

And when she got back

He stood on his head .

She went to the hosier’s

To buy him some hose ,

But when she got back

He was dressed in his clothes .

She went onto the internet

To buy him some chews,

But when she got back

He was reading the news

She went to the Congress

To buy him some laws

But when she got back 

He had sharpened his claws .

  1. Great extensions. I’m beginning to feel like I understand 🙂
