No Dogs Allowed

dogs are loyal of course they are
but can a dog hold you in his arms
and i admit that they are cute
but what they love is in their snoot
you can take a dog on a walk
but you and that dog will never talk
and dogs will protect you when they can
but your best protection is with a man
buy a dog, feed a dog, chain a dog up
slavery is all it's known even from a pup
give a man your love and maybe he will be
the one thing you wish that that dog could be
open your eye's, let down the guard, call the dogs off
if your not careful an opportunity may be lost
i don't want to remove or replace any thing you love
a little time to be with you was what i was thinking of
maybe you could spare just a couple of minuts
can we have a conversation with no dogs in it

    I know that pets can become your best friend but they do not replace human contact. I see some dogs treated better than people are. Each has it's place. love phyl

    JOhn..u wrote a very important poem here...It drives me insane when folks refer to their pets as their children...I guess bc I was able to have 3 children it is all the same to me. I have one sister, on the other hand, who was not able to have children. She takes the job of raising her cats very seriously. I do see both sides of this. A very interesting write. I've gotta fav it! Enjoyed. Gwendolen

    I see what you are going for and this I agree with. I love dogs but as dogs not people. I love people much more and would never replace the love of a human with the love of a dog.
