Out with the dogs: Pragmatic Pete meets Cocky Brown. A double limerick…*
Pete felt the first raindrop, looked up, and said, “Golly!
I think I had better spring open my brolly.
My dog’s in the river. I’ll call him. Hey, Ollie!
You’ll wear yourself out chasing ducks. It’s pure folly!
You dog paddle well, but in vain.
And so you have nothing to gain.
I really do hate to complain.
But, well, it is starting to rain…”
Just then Hewett Brown came along with his collie.
“No duck can escape my Unsinkable Molly!”
