The Bumble Puppy by Carolyn Wells

A satirical poem by Carolyn Wells

This is the Bumblepuppy. He’s quite tame,
Although he’s said to be a sort of game.
You scorn him, yet you must—ah, there’s the rub—
Accept him at your table or your club.
He has his points, yet he’s a pest, indeed;
I would we could exterminate the breed.
