God was finishing his creations
when an angel walked past.
God said to the angel,
"The best will be last".

"This animal we create will 
be loyal and true.
With a heart of pure gold and
we'll paint his mouth blue.
He'll have great intelligence 
and a mystery within.
When we finish his face,
we'll give him a grin."

God finished his creation,
then knelt on one knee and
whispered to him 
what his purpose would be.

"You will take man, my love,
when I set you free.
Then you'll turn one ear
and listen for me.
I've given you a coat
that will make the kings bow.
For this you'll be captured
and known as 'the Chow'".
