    Mostly what a dog does he does

    Although dogs might be true sometimes they
    Do things that they shouldn’t do. Hey,
    When he’s bad, it’s a sign
    That he got out of line.
    Just be glad he might sometimes obey.

    Okay, Enough Clean Ones

    A dog can be taught how to beg
    Or to walk through the Alps with a keg;
    So it's really quite queer
    I can't teach Fido here
    Just to fall out of love with my leg.
    And this from a man in a bunny suit.

    And that is how my dog became a father while legally chained to his doghouse

    My dog never met her before.
    When her chain clicked she slipped through the door
    And my neighbor yelled, “Stop!”
    But my dog wouldn’t stop
    Nor would his since they both wanted more.

    Elegy to a Heap of Scrap Metal

    My vehicle's yielded her starter;
    The piece of junk ain't worth a barter.
    She bore me through trials
    250K miles
    And ran well and died as a martyr.

    Elegy to a Heap of Scrap Metal II

    When I was a strapping young Jack,
    I attached license plates to my hack.
    Pluvial succors
    Just rusted them f*ckers;
    Now I can't get the jolly things back.

    I should have told my dad I was going to buy that car before I bought it but he fixed it up for me when my repairs backfired

    There are reasons why junk cars are cheap
    Since the cost of repairs can get steep,
    But they run for a while
    And may give you a smile
    Like the least likely treasure to keep.

    She's a peach...or maybe a lemon...some type of fruit anyway

    Car repair is one of the fine arts
    But I'm always short just a few parts
    Detroit made her
    With dual carburetor
    But lately her tail pipe just farts
    Some people call me Maurice
    'Cos I speak of the pompatus of love

    Elegy to a Heap of Scrap Metal III

    I had needs be a vehicle buyer,
    So I thought I should visit a liar.
    He looked in my eyes
    And told me some lies;
    Now again I progress upon tire.

    Caint'cha just hear that opening guitar riff?

    Rain water blowing all under my hood
    I knew that was doin' my motor good
    Why caint'cha be true
    Why caint'cha be true - hoo
    Wisht I could rhyme the way Chuck Berry do ... (would?)

    I think I like it better with the non-standard rhyme scheme

    I think this one's had it!

    A lovely mechanic named Hugh,
    When asked with my car what to do,
    Suggested I find
    a scrap dealer who's blind,
    So I might make a penny or two.

    The Dragon Trusts They’ll Take Care of the Cave

    No dragon could trust his household
    Was safe from a damsel so bold,
    From a knight far too bright,
    Over-itching to fight,
    So he moved and removed all his gold.

    Damsels are not to be trusted (and neither are dragons)

    Some knights don't know when to give up,
    Despite damsels who beat them to pulp,
    Then run off with the gold
    (and the dragon, its told),
    Leaving them to feel such a daft chump.

    If I had a dragon

    My dragon knows how to make bright
    A dark cave or hide stars in the night.
    When he’s good I would say,
    “You’re a good boy today!”
    When he’s bad, he’s just more a delight.

    Well as every girl knows in her heart
    she should find a good boy and be smart
    but a good boy is boring
    and much more alluring
    is a bad boy who tears her apart.

    Why females generally don’t marry the bad boy although some can’t tell the difference

    A good boy’s the one girls marry
    Who’ll forget or don’t know when they tarry
    Where bad boys abound
    But a bad boy don’t sound
    Like the kind that a good girl could marry.
