There was a dog that couldn't bark
And when alone and in the dark,
If something he got scared about,
He couldn't do a doggy shout.
Facing fear and maybe violence,
He had to just sit there in silence.
He couldn't warn his loving master
Of the impending disaster.
But soon Mute Mutt began to learn
The silence meant he could discern
Every sound with growing skill
And most of them were nothing ill.
Five point nine nine times out of six
His mind had just been playing tricks,
Fabricating canine fright
With things that went bump in the night.
