My Friend's Black Labrador is a Baritone: a poem by James Aitchison

April 16th, 2019

Tilly’s dog Jet has a strange


He wants to sing opera in the French


When other dogs lift their heads and bay,

Jet lifts his and sings Bizet.

While other dogs prefer to bark,

Jet performs his Offenbach.

He loves to howl into the sky

And wants to give La Scala a try.
