The Beggar

22 Apr 2014

He is a puppy who whines and
cries when he is uncomfortable,
who bites and claws society
when he's sleeping
because he is dreaming.

Passers look at this sleeping puppy
and some claim he dreams,
while some say that he is just a dog,
and dogs have no dreams;
they are not allowed.

Once, a professor of mine
pointed at his setter and remarked
how she dreamed of chasing
the squirrels in the park.
Micky's chasin em right up the tree!!

At night, when the dog growls and
bites it's bed, who can know what chaos
sweeps through his sleeping mind?
They may be dreams, but dreams
unknown like those of a baby.
