I need to make a clarification.
In case anyone is confused.
I think I Wish Someone Had Given Jesus a Dog is a bad poem.
I like dogs.
I like Jesus, he's okay with me.
Rudyard Kipling, I'm not a fan, but some are.
But read I Wish Someone Had Given Jesus a Dog out loud. It is a bad, bad poem. Try to say these words in any type of meter:
"Well, the Lord has a dog now, I just sent Him mine
the old pal so dear to me
And I smile through my tears on this first day alone
Knowing they're in eternity."
But here's the worst part:
"To sleep by His manger and gaze in His eyes
And adore Him for being divine."
and then..."And knelt in the garden to pray."
Seriously. That makes Jesus' dog thirty-three years old.
