Description

Text to poem:

THERE'S A BLUE AND WHITE DOG IN MY CIRCUS

I ONCE LIVED A DOG'S LIFE MYSELF AS A YOUNGSTER IN AMERSTERDAM WITH A CANVAS UNDER MY ARM

THE CIRCUS OF IRON AND FIRE WAS GOING FULL SWING THERE WERE WILD BEASTS IN THE STREETS

WHEN WAS IT I SAW THAT FELLOW BEATING THE DOG?

GIVE OVER, I SAID OR I'LL BASH YOUR SKULL IN

AND I BRANDISHED MY CANVAS LIKE AN AXE

A TRAINED DOG IS A SAD DOG
