Epigram

At Kew the dog went about in high collar
Being his highness’s dog, epigramatically.
As proud dog asks other whose dog it is.
Pedigree is not just dog food but station.

A little problematically,when other dogs
Have no toilets and lampposts are far off.
A Kew dog raises its brows dramatically.
Epigrams are no longer sold by kilograms.
Pray tell me sir whose hanger-on you are.

(referring to Pope’s epigram I am his highness’s dog at Kew…)
