Our Neighbor's Dog

Our neighbor's dog

It yaps, growls, and barks all day long... My neighbor's German shepherd Raja From a playful, frisky puppy just six months ago To a bored, frustrated, scrawny dog Fed on rice and ragi balls He is a defeated king Ignored by the pot-bellied master of the house Wheeling out his scooter in the morning and wheeling it back in the evening... With nary a look at his frantic, tail-wagging, attention-begging beast Ignored by the bored wife with a child on her hip Standing at the gate watching the world of the vegetable sellers glide by... On those languid afternoons when my siesta is shattered by Raja's howls... I hate my neighbors and wish them begone And Raja too To torment them in hell...
