Theodore, where’s Chippy?
Did the big black dog from the cemetery next door spirit him away
when the fog rolled up from Woodbine River late last night?
Did Chippy snap? Did he bite, did he claw
when the Big Black Dog from the cemetery next door
carried him off in his jaws?
Theodore, did you try to stop the Black Cemetery Dog
did you warn him away, did you howl did you growl?
Did you do anything at all to save Chippy, when the Devil Dog camd to call?
Answer me this
do I need to sleep with one eye open
when you are around?
Because I’m starting to believe
the Black Cemetery Dog who carries off it’s pray doesn’t live next door-
does he Theodore?
