LJ Idol week 23 - underdog

What is under a dog? It depends
on where the dog is, I would guess.
In Iceland there’s ash
In Egypt there’s sand
If it's inside all day there's a mess.

If it’s naughty there might be a stain,
If it’s a girl there might be puppies,
If it runs too fast
Beside the fish tank
Then under it might be the guppies.

In the fall it might be pretty leaves
In the summer it would be the grass
As long as the dog
Is sitting down
Then under the dog is his ass.

Inside of the house, under a dog
There’s tile floor or a rug or parquet
(And inside a dog
under the house,
It’s dark, squishy and maybe decayed.)

Under a dog is a shadow,
Under a dog are it's feet.
Look at that Mom!
That dog's under a dog
Oh dear, I guess she's in heat.

Under dog in the dictionary
Doggerel is one word you will find
Defined as verse that
Is rude, crude, or poor
That was a thought I could get behind



***This is my entry for week 23 of LJ Idol: underdog. There was a voice post but I didn't have time to finish edits, update the reading and move everything before the deadline. I had several other ideas for this week but none that really clicked until this silliness.***

You're the second person to say that to me today, and I'll bet you both get to stay another week :)

Well this was just pure fun to work on and I hope that comes through. But trying poetry for the first time now is scary. I'm also bummed that I took my nap when I did, because I didn't have time to change the voice post to match the edits from J. Pesky voice posts - I should have stayed my text only self. ETA I decided to get rid of the voice - much as I enjoyed reading it I didn't like having a non-final version. And this is why I usually try to be done with at least a day to spare, jeesh.
