Mr. Nobody

Silver Star - 8,346 Points (Timeless / Right Now, Right Here)

I Live Like a Dog


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
Wag in my game
Rex is my name
BOW-
W0W
insane?

    This is indeed a powerful poem. It evokes laughter, it evokes remorse but does not evoke indifference. Its impact cannot be missed. (Report) Reply

    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.

    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

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
