Out on the farm a dog and cat
No finer pals you’ll ever find.
Then the dog barked, you’re not my kind
How could the news be worse than that?

The chicken called and so did the rat
It turns out now you’re not canine.
Then I’m told it seems you’re feline!
You never bark, you say meow
Still we are friends I will allow
I don’t care what others opine.

The style has a rhyming pattern of abbaaccddc. Sometimes you break the stanza up in abba/accddc.
The abba/accddc requires either a period or semicolon after the fourth line break.
