Why do dogs bark? Perhaps they know something we humans don’t.
Outside the supermarket
shoppers getting into their stride
and I’m left with their legs outside
and a whirl of trolley wheels.
Looking for a bargain?
Look at me I’m barking.
A warning or invitation to play
that’s your guess, if you dare.
So I’m anxious, who cares?
Be annoyed or amused, so what?
Angry, impatient or just spoilt
I’m Minnie. Here comes the boss
and there he goes, what’s he
forgotten this time
hope it’s not me
tied to this pole…bark! bark!
This poem speaks for itself too.
Dark pools of night concrete and ice
An inhuman sacrifice
Count your blessings
Know your place
Focus on the human race
If one falls were all the less
Someone else clears up the mess
Whose mess is it anyway?
When the plans were drawn
And the future was omitted
They made me pay for their mistake
Just for their reputation’s sake
EVERYONE NEEDS FOOD TO EAT
EVERYONE NEEDS A PLACE TO SLEEP
EVERYBODY GOTTA HAVE CLOTHES TO WEAR
UNLESS SOMEBODY’S HOME WE’RE ALL NOWHERE
