Why Dogs Bark


Why Dogs Bark

 Dora and Gora the twin stood shoulder to shoulder 
Gave blood and sweat for each other .

They worshiped mostly God, their father and mother, 
Bought an acre of land, and ploughed crops to bear . 
They became richer as poor parents grew older , 
Soon got married, brought home new treasure, 
Found no time, they ran after money and butter; 
Enough money why not two mansions for better. 
Named Dora and Gora, parents pushed to corner .

The old hearts shed tear to grow poorer than older 
Two sons claimed to serve them better than better 
The feud separated the love, grew fiercer and faster. 
To take guard of mansions duo, father and mother 
Got separated, forgot man and woman if one lover 
Ribs broken to join two, broke like wooden batter 
Dora fed father, Gora fed mother to make them thinner. 

Fence divides brothers, fence makes good neighbor, 
Between fence Dora and Gora lived like neighbor; 
Treasure neighbor’s envy, women’s pride ever 
Leaves, branches and air denied cross the fence higher 
The ribs creaked, tears hardened like soil in summer 
Cry of the poor was heard no more, died out the lover 
Fence killed brother, fence made neighbor; 
Bought only enemies to save the fence for ever.
Fought to divide and own the fence thick layer, 
How can a fence belong to two, a clash turned fiercer, 
Two brothers cut each other’s head in fury and anger 
Devoted wives prayed God and fasted without water. 
God was pleased to grant bliss as supreme savior, 
Said ,’Done’ but done with human life for ever; 
Loved to grant them a new name ‘Dog‘ very clever, 
Dear to ladies, with a bend end to bark at his brother.
