Active RetireesTM | 61 UNGLE Ungle, Ungle, Crashing through the jungle; Beware the mighty Ungle, Chasing bunnies in the bush. But oh those running rabbits, Have annoying hiding habits, And duck down bunny burrows, To where Ungles cannot push. Homeward trots the Ungle, Dwelling not on his defeat. He stops at gate of garden, Where good friends he soon will greet. For a dog has his routine. Even bunnies wait in line. When the kids come home from school, It’s dog and people time! Ungle, Ungle, They love their mongrel Ungle. The kids come running home, Shouting out his name. Come here come here come here boy, Held in hand his fluffy toy, A puppy heart jumps for joy. It’s the go go get ’em game. Now Ungle had his pride, And knew that as a whole, He offered more than fun and games, And wildlife control. He had an end that woofed, To keep bad things at bay, And another end that wagged, To brighten people’s day. And between said teeth and tail, Stood canine with the lot. True champion of champions, But for a snobbish plot. Shame on those fancy doggie breeds, How low can bad dogs go? They banned his type from dog parades, Lest a mongrel steal their show. Champion of the Underdog, And voted Man’s Best Friend. Are titles Ungles hold, Are titles they defend. But the dog eat dog world, Has our hero in some doubt. “Should it come to that,” says he, “I’ll just chew and spit them out.” Choose any major milestone, On a magic history ride, And you will find an Ungle, With a human by his side. Though humans claim the glory, For where we are today. Ungles learn from puppyhood, It was they that showed the way. So when the day is done, And darkness fills the sky. Our Ungle lies on blanket, And dreams of days gone by. Till cheeky little bunnies, In dream, disturb his rest. They taunt, he has a dog’s life, But a dog’s day’s just the best. Bob Hawes Tea Tree Gully Probus Epitaph to a nephew I've lived the kind of life I loved I've known the great outdoors – the streams, the hills The golden glory of a sunrise in the bush I've known the animals – the birds, and for no reason I've even caught the grey ducks out of season Save that I like ducks I've known the true companionship of dogs I've watched the canvas of the sky, clouds painted By the Great Artist using sunset paints I've studied fish and trees and known the peace of mind That comes to those to whom the stars were kind You see, I like the stars And now this is the finest life of all It's peaceful here. I'm going to try to find Where rainbows end – I always wished to know.
