A Hunting Taradoggle
To celebrate his new Jeep Cherokee,
Bill culled the barroom's best duck-hunting pack,
and flush with beer, and dog, set out to see
how many fowl would fall to their attack.
To float decoys out on the frozen lake,
Bill threw a stick of dynamite. The gash
he hoped to make, soon proved a huge mistake.
His dog gave lightning chase, and in a flash
with proud head up, retrieved the sparking stick.
The hunters yelled and howled, but on he came.
In disbelief, they raised their guns, and sick
with fear all shot, but missed with shaky aim.
The canine dropped his freight beside the Jeep.
which blew sky high, then slipped into the deep.
