I Live Like A Dog - Poem by A.. Freeman

UP out of the slime of human existence
I live like a DOG without resistance

I see, hear, smell and sense what is NOW
Much more than the frog, Man or cow

I live like a dog, right here and now
Some might say my talk is Bow-Wow

I don't study the Moon, Sun nor tomorrow
No Time, always timeless
no time for yesterday's pain, sorrow

Now I'm aware of all that IS
I'm changing my name, more fitting it is

Ruffus Barklay Wagner or Rex for short
I'm here for the petting, the food and sport

That is all

out of doors
no walls

not even
cat calls

Ruff is my life
Waggin' my game
Rex is my name

    LOL I love dog stories and this one was very nice.
    'I'm here for the petting, the food and sport' does sound a bit like my dogs. But they are also here for their pack (family) , and don't forget the smells.

    So many excellent virtues are possessed by dogs that I dare say many humans would have improved lives if they lived by the amazing attributes of dogs... Well done my friend! (Report) Reply

    One thing with you,
    Never a dull moment,
    Even a dog's life,
    You would make,
    A happy torment!

    Such a clever, witty poem.
    Loved it! (Report) Reply
