317. Sized Up!

Three handsome dogs walked out one day and all of them were males.
They walked with a casual canine air, wagging their little tails.
The first was a smart Retriever, and a Labrador was following.
The last was a little Chihuahua, small enough for swallowing!
Young men of every species have an eye for the main chance,
And to every dog upon their way they gave a second glance.
At last they chanced on Fifi, a Poodle and a girl!
The sight of this sexy female sent their hormones in a whirl!
Fifi was white and fluffy, with quite adorable eyes,
And Rex and Lex and Charlie all desired her as a prize.
They lined-up for her favours, but Fifi was no fool,
Even with three smart suitors she certainly kept her cool.
'The first one' giggled Fifi, who was quite inclined to tease,
'To utter these two words….one's LIVER and one's CHEESE…'
'Liver', 'Cheese!' they shouted, eager to pass the test!
'Hold on!' said little Fifi 'You haven't heard the rest!
You must make-up a pithy sentence to prove that you are clever!
I could never mate with a stupid dog! Never! Never! Never!'
The Retriever, Rex then cleared his throat, hardly able to wait;
'Cheese and liver; these are foods I absolutely hate!'
'Utterly dull!' said Fifi; 'You lack imagination!'
Rex slunk off, despondent, shocked by the situation.
Then up spoke Lex, with a dog-like grin, very eager to please;
'I know! I know!' he blurted out 'I love liver and cheese!'
'No better!' said Fifi, 'And, whatsmore, I think it's even duller!
I want a sentence full of life, and wit, and charm and colour!'
Charlie Chihuahua stood apart, waiting to be invited.
His friends looked on, knowing he, too, was just about to be slighted.
'And what about you?' said Fifi, as Charlie stood in line.
Charlie smiled then he spoke up….
'Liver alone! Cheese mine!'
