Pet Dog

A new neighbour has just moved
into our gated community.
His daughter who has delightful eyes
is all eager to keep a pet dog for her joy. 

Poor fellow is worried
about the responsibilities
the possession will bring in -
walking the pet every day,
picking its smelly shit. 

He is a dog domesticated by default
into a world 
where he doesn’t know
whose bidding he is following. 

Oh Lord, bless him all the way!
