Dogs Own Country - Poem by Josey Alfred

Dogs Own Country

Dogs are revered in Utopia
No human may envy him or the bitch,
They have unbounded liberties conferred
No one can question them or punish.

They hold the freedom to tramp anywhere
And bite anyone whom they chose
Or eat the pupil of an infant’s eyeball,
And still can go scot-free, without a care.

A tiger who poaches in human habitats
And kill his live stoke, or his kind
May get shot by a forester guard,
But no one in utopia will harm a mad dog.

You are advised to build kennels
As few are doing, for welfare of dogs
The public may pay from their pockets
Just to enhance, welfare of stray dogs.

    There have been a number of deaths due to the attack of stray dogs. Unfortunately in our state human beings have lesser value in the eyes of dog lovers. People let their dogs stray and they multiply eating all the meat and fish waste dumped carelessly here are there. Small children and old people commonly become the prey of these canine 'gangsters'. Now God's country is turned to Dog's country! (Report) Reply
