Black Dog - Poem by keith brown

My Daughter has a black dog
It eats nothing Save a
few pills
and a
little water

No need for a dog door
It comes and goes at will
It doesn’t bark, but bites and
has been known to kill,
Yet, when asleep
It seems quite tame
so try not to wake it
don’t
mention its name.

If I could
I would take it Away
That’s harder done
yet
so easy to say
Just get yourself straight
It’s all in your mind
But remember
This black dog’s
not of the canine kind

She would get herself straight
if she only knew how

When she asks the black dog
It just replies with a growl
