Tribute to a Dog

A dog named Doug met Ambrose Bierce
within a book one day.
The words they jumped right off the page
and caused the dog to say,
“Oh, the wonder of these words,
they surely must be mine!”
So the dog named Doug created a blog
which simply is divine.
A place where wisdom, wit and ridiculous
all meet in one accord
To thrust and parry, swashbuckle and flash
swift as a dueling sword.
People travel by ‘net the world around
to insult boast and mug;
And when you ask them why they say,
“Ya gotta dig that dog named, Doug!”


written for Doug of Waking Ambrose
