Dog Haiku
Today I sniffed
Many dog butts--I celebrate
By kissing your face.
I lie belly-up
In the sunshine, happier than
You ever will be.
Sleeping here, my chin
On your foot--no greater bliss
--well, Maybe catching rats.
I love my master;
Thus I perfume myself with
This long-rotten squirrel.
I lift my leg and
Whiz on each bush .  Hello, Spot-
Sniff this and weep.
My human is home!
I am so ecstatic I have
Made a puddle.
I sound the alarm!
Paperboy--come to kill us all--
Look!  Look!  Look!  Look!   Look!
I sound the alarm!
Garbage man--come to kill us all--
Look!  Look!  Look!  Look!  Look!
The cat is not all
Bad--she fills the litter box
With Tootsie Rolls.
I am your best friend,
Now, always, and especially
When you are eating.
My owners' mood is
Romantic--I lie near their
Feet. I fart a big one.
How do I love thee?
The ways are numberless as
My hairs on the rug.
I Hate my choke chain.
Look, world, they strangle me! Ack
Ack Ack Ack Ack Ack!
You may call them fleas,
But they are far more--I call
Them a vocation.
Dig under fence--why?
Because it's there. Because it's
There. Because it's there.
Look in my eyes and
Deny it. No human could
Love you as much I do.

You can also put text in tables with 
colored backgrounds... like this one.
