DOGS LEARN FASTER
(9/18/14)


Brother Bollocks

to be more

he makes
the rounds

mimics
the motions

says the words

through the years
as being appropriate
for each occasion

unfortunately
at every turn
Brother Bollocks
is rebuffed

rebuffed
with extreme
prejudice

he

he is missing
having his head
handed to him
on a regular
basis

Brother Bollocks
returns home
