If I had been born an Afghan

With long hair wearing a kaftan

four paws manicured nicely

breath smelling of candy

tail wagging tastefully

eyes looking intelligent

nose pointing purposefully

shoulders upright

flank muscles formed

Internal organs fine

And kennel club certified

Fed the finest of foods

walked three times daily

pampered like a pooch

vaccinated like a baby

homed in warmth

protected from harm

all of my life.

I’d have run away a long time ago!
