Peter had a perfect life,
Three perfect kids and a perfect wife,
But Peter’s flaw,
Which he took from Dad,
Was a big Black Dog,
Which made him sad.
He kept it in the family shed,
Or sometimes hid it in his bed,
And never said that the Dog was there,
Even when it was hard to bear,
Peter smiled to his perfect wife,
And his perfect kids and his perfect life,
Peter felt he could always cope,
‘Til the day they found him on a rope.
