Bob, after taking a picture of George Clifford's dog, wrote some lines he himself considered as an allegory of a humorous nature, but Clifford spoke of the text as a witty poem from Bob's heydays.

Is it a dog as well, that seems so much like us and has dozed off on the couch? It says in the instructions how we must lie and sleep, how we are to prepare a feast and clean a house and it also states what we should do with dogs and they with us. That other people round us clean the furniture before sunrise, dispel the night with soap and water, line up before us asking are we standing still, are these our hands, how do we keep the dogs at bay? We rush towards the books to find the right pages. The sun arises barking.
