Hungry as a Dog

Never seen anything as hungry as a dog
Will grovel lonely at your feet
Til you either throw him out
Or give him food to eat

He’ll tap and tap down at your feet
Stabbing each and every toe
You’ll push against his soaking mane
Begging him to go

Reaching up to catch your ear
He’s screeching out a howl
You finally throw a bone his way
And hear not another growl
