We Could Learn

          A big black dog and a Calico cat
          Got into a fuss and a horrible spat
          The cat m-e-o-w-e-d and hissed like that
          Such a loud noise in no time flat.
          The dog growled and barked so loud  
          This drew a large and applauding crowd
          These animals created a huge dust cloud  
          Then the cat strutted on and so proud.
          The big dog rolled its dark brown eyes
          Then looked around with great surprise
          The cat returned to hopefully win a prize
          Somehow, that appeared to not be wise.
          The crowd noticed and applauded again  
          The dog turned to see...and then ran
          The dog and cat seemed to have a plan
          They touched noses...more peaceful than man.
          They lay near one another in total peace
          If man would do likewise...wars would cease
          Oh, that love of mankind would increase  
          Every life would receive a new lease.
          Man could and should learn a lesson or two
          If they would just be careful what they do
          Arguments would then be slight and only a few
          Peace must begin first with me...and you.
