“Plato’s Republic”

Dogs at my door,
Dogs on the floor,
Dogs in the halls,
Dogs on the walls of my brain...
Dogs on the walls of my brain.

Dogs in the skies,
Dogs in the streets,
Dogs in my eyes,
Dogs at my feets with sticks...
All these dogs do is chase and bring me sticks.

Dogs in the trees,
Dogs with hats,
Dogs driving cars,
Dogs chasing cats and I see them...
They ain’t foolin’ me: they’re goddammed dogs!

Dogs, dogs, dogs, dogs, dogs,
Dogs, dogs, dogs, dogs, dogs...

Never give a dog as a gift; you are making a commitment for another person and that’s completely inappropriate. Hunter!

Dogs reading books,
Dogs give me looks,
Dogs on top,
Dogs never stop.
Now, “STOP!”
