What to do if a dog bites

I was running from the man

Or the cops if you please

 I hopped over a fence

Landed funny, scraped my knee


Looked around and saw a shack

Hoped for comfort and ease

Like a hooker in church

Sweating on her knees


Peered into that shack

What a shock and surprise

Head like Mount Rushmore

We were lookin eye to eye


Started running for my life

Jesse Owens be proud

Dog snapping on my leg

Not a bark ,not a sound


Almost made it to the fence

With his teeth on my ass

Like a student in school

Was hoping for a pass


Had my back to the fence

Was looking for a stick

That dog drew  first blood

Stream of red like Moby Dick


The end of the story

Had been lookin for fun

Searching for my phone

Called K911

    This is very well written. Thanks for the re-lived memory of an encounter I had with a St. Bernard. Climbing back in through the window, was far more difficult then the climb out. I ended up SO GROUNDED! Great piece of writing. Thanks for sharing.

    Have to chuckle at this. We may share a past if you write from experience. Or share common friends if from observation. Either way, great piece. - Chuck
