A Dog Knows His Nose

 

A dog knows his nose is a meaningful part
Like a handshake of greeting, extending the heart.
A dog knows his nose is not right or wrong
It is what it is, like a bird and a song.

A dog knows his nose picks up things that we wouldn’t
If it were possible, we’d teach him he shouldn’t.
A dog knows his nose will show him around
And tell him all things without hearing a sound.

A dog knows his nose is dripping and cold
And will be that way until he is old.
If you wondering why his attentiveness goes,
He’s following close cuz a dog knows his nose.
