Dog JusticeSeptember 28, 2017
I would avenge Ol’ Shep right here;
had I finger, and a rifle.
I’d leave damn Timmy in the well,
contemplating vast and trifle.
The scuttling hare would know my name,
those squirrels would reap a welter.
And random cats, feral or tame,
would have no peace or any shelter.
I would deal death to wilder things
that would mock or give trespass.
I must fly at that flat frontier
that lies beyond the window glass.
I don’t know where good doggies go.
(Some rainbow bridge? Some Tupelo?)
It is my way, my doggish tao:
My faith plows the eternal now.
