Dogs should not wear coats

by joetwo

Dogs should not be wearing coats

Or carried around in bags

They’d rather wander in the nip

And chew forgotten rags

Nor cats be kept all day inside

Where they cannot roam free

They should be out to hunt their sport

Whatever that may be

A bird’s wing clipped is an affront

Against all nature’s way

For how can birds that cannot fly

Enjoy the light of day

I think myself, above all else

Should stay away from you

But I can’t help it, I am drawn

So what else can I do?
