When the dog barks


When the dog barks
Don’t crack, I remark
Watch your back
Maybe it is about to attack

A dog is commonly your loyal slave
But your master when it is brave
It can be your best friend
It can be your worst enemy

When the dog barks
Get ready on your mark
It senses you in the dark

When the dog barks
And you don’t talk back
It will sense the courage you lack

When the dog barks
You may need to give it a whack
To set it on the right track
Before it embarks
On a mission with its mates in a pack

When the dog bites
You must put up a fight

When the dog bites
Think hard, do what is right

When the dog whines
Even you should know it’s not fine

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
