Oh dear, dear Gato-
You were gifted
To be lifted
Out of the ghetto!

You....struck lotto!

And, in your new found home -
A far far bark from that hovel,
You received love and care,
With no need to grovel!

Here, you weaved your magik
Mesmerising the publik;
With your penetrating gaze,
Leaving your teeming admirers in a daze.

Oh dear, dear Gato,
You are far from a N A T O (No Action Talk Only)
A dog of action,
With a flair for detection!

You donned your uniform,
A call to attention,
And swearing allegiance -
You are now honour bound
To go out there and perform
And reform...

Cleansing the streets of
Dog and cat miscreants,
A loyal public servant-
Striving to make this world
A safer
And better place!

About this poem

Written for a dog discovered abandoned in a ditch. Taken into a loving home, he bloomed into a spoilt, loving pet with an almost human personality.
