Stoicism On Dog Bite - Poem by saranyan bee

dog bites my calf,
dog not a pup,
the lipid yellow hangs
blood ooze
surprise overtakes pain -
bodes well, no witness!

I plan telling none,
‘unbite’ campaign
like Benetton
works on emotions
- not actions
that is over.

so I go to doc
who says it’s seven pokes,
the girl washes n’
dresses the wound,
scruffy bandage
stuffed with gauze
hangs like rat-tail;

she then sends the needle
in my bare bum
like it never happened,
slaps me there later
and says, ‘ get up, careful,
dogs prefer men in tatter’.
