Muscles on a leash

Muscles on a leash.

The man who keeps his muscles on a leash
He doesn't need he any kind of speech
His dog will do the talking
As he's strutting, as he's walking
The man who keeps his muscles on a leash.

I saw this bloke the other day
Whilst walking down the street
And the look I saw upon his face
Was anything but sweet
He had this great big grunting beast
All studded, on a leather leash
This dog it was a threat to say the least.

That demon looked at me and growled
While it's master gave a heavy scowl
It didn't do my poor heart any good
I've thought about this many times
It seems to be a bloody crime
That man’s best friend be handled by a hood.

The man that keep his muscles on a leash
It seems to me he's worse than any beast
For he knows what he's game's about
While dog he just plays orders out
For the man who keeps his muscles on a leash.

    this was intelligent AND fun to read. It seems like the guys that used to show their masculinity in car choices are now extending this into the dogs they jog with! (My breed of preference is English Mastiff--if one can afford to feed them! )

    This one gave me chills, Peter: .....even on a leash they are sometimes, a lethal and unpredictable force. I know I had my calf torn off by a free pitbull that was coming for my little Maltese. I got him off the ground in time but he gave me a terrible and lasting injury. Over it now but I never look at them the same after that. CAUTION with a capital C. SuZ

    I have a big Rottweiler myself suZ, but he is as gentle as a lamb, but I am always wary of other peoples dogs. It is not the dog really, it is the idiots that are in charge of them...Thank you for your comments, my friend...peter.

    "His dog will do the talking!" Clever poem, and the repetitions gave it a rhythm similar to that some blues songs have. Smilingly good poem, Peter, and thank you for it. G.

    Interesting take on walking a Rottweiler or attack trained Doverman Pincher..Sometimes they are just little lambs though usually about how they are handled..All breeds will get in that attack mode sometimes...Enjoyed reading this one ...Our Chihuahua all 8 pounds of her gets in the attack mode when anyone looks threatening..Sara

    Thank you sara. I have a Rottweiler, and he is like a baby. I was pointing out the stupidity of those who use these dogs to big time themselves. I don't like these types. Thanks for your comments my friend...peter
