Whippet Poem: London Pride

by Wendy Wray
(London)

I am a London Whippet,
I live quite near the City,
I do not yearn for open fields
But love the nitty-gritty
And the bustle of a big town
Where things are always popping
The pet department Selfridges
Is where I do my shopping.
I am a City Slicker
A Whippet about town,
The tourists stop to speak to me
I love to act the clown.
I stride with pride along the Strand
Run rings in Regent's Park,
Know all the shops in Oxford Street
And "The Dilly" after dark.
I'm a very street wise Whippet -
I know just what to do -
And I christen all the lamp posts
From Grays Inn to Waterloo.
I'm familiar with Bow Street
(I'm a runner too you know)
And I terrify the squirrels
In every park I go.
I'm a very busy Whippet
Life never gets me down
There's always such a lot to do
When you live in London town.
