The Cisco Kid

You dare not mess, with Cisco 'less, you want to feel his bite.
This 4-year old, is nice we're told, when sound asleep each night. 

He's strong as bull, could prob'ly pull, a tooth if given chance.
Has rap he's bad; is always mad; will bite at slightest glance.

Stubborn as mule; ready to duel; with other barking breeds
Keep closed your gate, else out he'll skate, to fill his simple needs.

Will eat canned food, and all else good; 
has appetite of bear.
Has many skills, like possum kills; 
for cats he does not care.

All kids he likes, will eat their bikes; 
prefers to run from broom.
Loves tetherball; for treats loves call; 
but give him ample room. 

What now to do, with baby due; go buy a leash more strong!
Must take more care, with Cisco there, and pray they'll get along.

At Arrington, his reign is done; new head will rule the land.
He'll have to play, fiddle today; no longer have command!

So flop your ear; they will not hear; you're just a dog they found.
Must now play ball, else they'll call, for van to come from pound.

Dedicated October 7, 2002 to the Carrillos and their dog, Cisco, by Nick Acevedo.
