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.
