Dog Prison

When a dog is very, very bad…

Beyond the “cone of shame,”

…They travel to an island

Where everything smells the same.

Squirrels and deer and rabbits

Run freely on the grasses

While dogs are put in kennels

And can’t sniff each others’ asses.

Every night they take a bath

And get their toenails groomed.

Some dogs end up someone’s bitch.

Some dogs end up perfumed.

They serve a 12-month sentence

That feels like seven years.

Some dogs come in, well… intact,

But they come out as steers.

So don’t be a bad doggie

All covered in piercings and tats,

‘Cause what I forgot to mention is

The place is run by cats!
