Callie Wallie Doodle All The Day

by Barry Louis Polisar

Went to the pound, got me a dog; I won't forget the day
I brought her home, she wagged her tail and she began to play:
Dig a hole, dig a hole,
Dig a hole in the flower bed.
She dug up every plant and tree
Now all the grass is dead.

She grabbed hold of the curtains and then she gave a tug;
She left a little pile in the middle of the rug:
Eat a hole, eat a hole,
Eat a hole in the garbage can.
Once she tried to eat the
UPS delivery man.

We tried to train her on a leash, but she just wouldn't stay.
I'd throw her sticks; she'd sit and stare and then she'd run away:
Break a hole, break a hole,
Break a hole right through the fence.
The neighbors will not talk to me,
Relationships are tense.

She sleeps upon my bed now; moves me out of the way.
The blankets are in shreds now, she barks at me all day:
Take the whole, take the whole,
Take the whole house...it is yours.
I'm sleeping on the floor now
And I'm scratching at the doors.
