Genetically engineered, maybe,
But soon in the future we may see,
Some strange yellow brute,
Half dog and half fruit..
A real melon-collie pup/baby.

I have a rather unusual pet. He’s half fruit and half dog. I call him Melancholy.

I genetically engineered a half dog/half fruit but it is sad.
It’s melon collie.
And an abomination against nature. Just disgusting.
