People often say that everything is getting worse and worse.

Well here is a handy doggerel retort to have up your sleeve…

Going To The Dogs

My granddad, viewing earth’s worn cogs,
Said things were going to the dogs;
His granddad in his house of logs,
Said things were going to the dogs;
His granddad in the Flemish bogs,
Said things were going to the dogs;
His granddad in his old skin togs,
Said things were going to the dogs;
There’s one thing that i have to state –
The dogs have had a good long wait.
