BAD DOG

How did it happen
that dogs get
such bad press
in a panoply of negatives?

 

“Going to the dogs”
“Dog Days”
“Dog tired”
“Doggerel”
“It shouldn’t happen
to a dog!”
“Sick as a dog”

 

The dogs
that I have had
have been best friends.
Many of my human friends
would claim the same.

 

So I have wondered
how it happened.
