Poor dog’s portion, in rhyme [4]

Just because you’re stuck cluing ordinary things, like NONE, doesn’t mean that you have to settle for a bland fill-in-the-blank “Master of ____” or a rote description. Here, the author takes a poetic route, one that requires solvers to recall not only the classic “Old Mother Hubbard” rhyme, but also the actual line: “the poor dog had none.”
