Swarthmore Hounds

sniff sniff bark bark
walking dogs in the dark
Swarthmore hounds rarely bite
but leave their bark on the night
terrible terrier who thinks he’s grand
two Labs we have, our usual brand
dogs of Swarthmore are elite
only the best the finest treats
they are part of what
we are made of
they are part of
what spells word love
