The dog walked down the road
The dog walked down the road. A man with no shoes reached down to pet him.
He asked, “Are you a good dog?”
Which upset the dog greatly, as he had never cared to know. The dog pressed forward. Two young women with billowy skirts cornered the dog with nasal adoration and glee. This made the dog very insecure. Then one old man in a wheelchair rolled up beside the dog and reached down to pet him silently. The dog froze in anger.
“What are you doing out here all alone?” the old man asked. And the dog answered, lifting his leg to piss on that dumb old man’s shoe.
