Ban Zoos and Be Good to Your Pets

The dog watches
Disinterestedly
From the basket
As you drunkenly dance
To the music videos
Late on a Friday night
And the girls you screw
Think he recognizes their voices
And faces
As they call his name
And blow him kisses
From Skype
“He’s so cute!”
But the fact is
He is a killer
A wild animal
Thinking about
Killing the cats
Who invade and piss
In his garden
His territory
Every night
But when the door shuts
Make sure he feels
Safe and secure
Happy to be there
Never fearful
And trapped
By humanity
