Romance - Poem by Pradip Chattopadhyay

To him she’s an eyesore.

Early morn she comes to his door
Dog walking!

Not that he hates dog
A bachelor though
He holds no dislike for women
Secretly watches through the window
The leasher and the leashed
Very displeased

For in the evening’s dim-lit road
His shoes often meet soft messy things
Hidden in the undergrowth
and he being a gentleman
is left to curse under his breath
venting in the air his flak
and again next morn
they’re back!

He imagines the woman is alone and free
with only the dog as company
and given a chance
could bud romance
around her neck his arm would loop
and he would live happily ever after

with her and dog poop!

    If it had been in the West, she would have been sued for letting her dog leave messy things in the undergrowth. Poor fellow! Think of his plight with his shoes soaked in dog's poop! Any way the trouble is well compensated with the prospects of a hot romance! ! Enjoyed much! I too award you a10 (Report) Reply
