A Dog Named Donald - Poem by Albert Ahearn

A pouting pooch whose boisterous barks
are uttered in superlatives
laying claim to unwarranted
due to an overbearing pride.
Strip him of his diamond studded
collar, not to mention his badly groomed coat
reveals a Manhattan cur:
a junkyard dog
who’d sooner attack innocence
than those bent on his destruction.
Fear not people! For his bark is worse
than his bite
The Donald thrives on attention.

    Wow a loveable piece on an adorable dog if we go by the description literally. But then it is a parody of what seems a demagogue. Maybe it is cooler and beta to have dogs and Donald ducks whose barks and quacks are worse than their bites. Bites hurt ouch so kudos for this creative metaphorical allegory.

    U r most welcome to comment under my latest poem too titled Ashurah. Pleeez pls do.
