The Little Dog and Liver, or Allegory of a Limp-Dick Man

There was a little dog who loved fresh liver.
His owner put the bowl down in front of him.
But the dog could only lower his head and wag his tail,
never reaching the liver itself. His owner grew frustrated
because he had prepared the liver for nothing.
If he took the bowl away the dog would cry.
He put the liver out and left it.
Here comes the little dog, wagging his tail,
with a clump of liver stuck to his nose.
