The other day, I bought the dog a brand new ball

It was one of those solid rubber things - just a tool
By which I could exercise her beyond just a walk
For running after these bounders, she doesn't balk

But the new one seemed to've had more spring
And so yesterday, she got caught by the thing ...
For it hit a snowbank and bounced up real high
And then she jumped up to snag it out of the sky

But she missed the catch and it bounced off her nose
And then rolled into the grass well into the fresh snow
And even though I've now made two return visits there
That new five dollar rubber ball is gone without a care
