Big Dog

You try to squeeze me
And you try to tease me, so
Come home, you big dog.

"Big Dog" barely deserves inclusion in the haiku series because it is 22 seconds long, a fragment from the Basement Tapes sessions rather than a serious attempt at a complete song. That said, it has enough words that an eager haiku smith can't help but give it a shot. The results are nearly identical to the lyrics, but not enough to violate copyrights... The original version appears on the Bootleg Series Vol. 11.
