Doggone it, I'm A Pit Bull

Hey! Whoa! Easy there, tiger
Umm, hello? Excuse me...
Just because you're my master
Doesn't mean I have to tolerate this
Doggone it, I'm a Pit Bull!
A king. A man's best friend
Don't you know how vicious I can be? 
I deserve more respect!
Stop choking me with the damn leash
Don't you see how mad I look?
Do you even care?
Walk a little slower when you walk
You've got two legs; I've got four
I should be quicker on my feet!
If you keep dragging me along
Tightening this leash around my neck
Before long, you'll be putting up
Yet another "Lost Dog" sign
Shouldn't we talk to Cesar Milan 
About our relationship?

This is an awesome personification poem, Edward. The viewpoint of the pit bull is wonderfully expressed as you lead us to your last two lines for a great finale. Congratulations on your excellent win. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

This poem is "whimsical & magical" in its content and its delivery. A good child pleaser for any age, holding your interest from start to finish. It comes alive within the reading as the story unfolds with imagery and humor, that lifts you from your world and places you inside of a pit bulls mind for a enjoyable moment in time. Emile.

Thanks, Kim!:-) Pitbulls are the most misunderstood, unfairly vilified dog breeds out there. Great dogs!
