Five Precepts Blues; #1.3 Innocent Little Doggie

Standard

George Coleman • Innocent Little Doggie

I suppose the moral in here would be not to think that one life is more or less valuable than another, just because it’s human, animal, or louse, but that’s just my take on it…

What is that we see trottin’ down the street?
None other than Innocent Little Doggie!
Ain’t he cute?

Waggin’ his tail every direction
Up, down, in and out, round and round
The cutest little creature!

Innocent Little Doggie walkin’ down the street
Eaten by fleas, eaten by the ticks, darn near eaten by man
Innocent Little Doggie

Ah oh…
Some reckless drunk driver has run over him
Meanwhile, he didn’t have a home in the first place
He was doin’ a good job of hustlin’ behind garbage cans
Kept himself fat, fat and unhealthy!
PLENTY FAT AND PLENTY UNHEALTHY!

Now he’s got run over
Nobody to care for him
What happens?

We find him in a ditch in the same condition as before
Eaten by fleas, eaten by roaches, flies, and ticks
Still darn near eaten by man
Innocent Little Doggie

Now being unable to move there comes a hard rain
The ditch floods were he took refudge, or refuge
Now he’s coated, covered in mud
Only the third portion of his body is out
From his two front paws on back he’s covered with mud
Still eaten by fleas, ticks, roaches and flies
NOT so fat, plenty unhealthy

Suddenly somebody walks by and hears the sound like this,

*whimpering*

What do we do?

In our mad passion we call the dog catcher, take him out and shoot him!
Innocent little doggie!

INNOCENT LITTLE DOGGIE!

Now we take man to be our friend
We found him on Skid Row eaten by louse
Some eaten by fleas
No set number as to how many diseases
He’s so hungry you can count his ribs from the outside
What do you do?

You take him in off Skid Row

You give him a place to sleep
A place he can bathe, clothes to wear
Let him rest for a good week then land him on a good job with good pay
And your thanks you get for that
First time your back is turned he steals your wife
And what do you do?
You don’t call the humane society, take him out and shoot him
You give him a medal…

Innocent Little DOOGIE!
