The Dangerous Duo
by Christy Twichell
(Simi Valley, Ca, USA)
Here comes Dover
Riding on his four-wheeled motor.
And his grand dog Belvadere
Wearing Dover’s football gear.
Where they go? You might ask.
Out to town to buy a mask
"To wear at midnight," they would say
"To scare the gophers all away."
Does it work? No one knows.
For no one’s seen where gophers go.
But every night you’ll see a bat
Right where Dover and Belvadere sat.
One thing that we know for sure
Is where to find them in a rush
When you need your gophers crushed.
Ask them and they will say,
"We'll make your gophers go away!"
