Curb Your Freakin' Dog: A Poem

Updated on December 13, 2016

The first step is to know what you do not know. The second step is to ask the right questions. I reserve the right to lean on my ignorance.

Cerebus the three-headed dog. Gate-keeper of the Underworld.

Damn you, Cerebus, dog-hound of Hell

Why do you bark at me with your

Many heads as I pass by

You challenge me, separately

But as one

You demean me, individually

But as a collective

Oh, but only I had the might

Of Hercules, I would render

You, and let your owners bark at

Me directly if they so dare

For, it is not you, brutish ones

Who bear me enmity, but your

Human masters, but why, oh why

It is because I walk and do

Not ride,

I pump my feet and do not drive

Curb your freakin' dog as I pass by

      Love how you took a barking dog and weaved in Greek Mythology. Nicely done.
