Cruel Colour!

Not to be enjoyed!


Some may consider this 'oh so cute!'
But I simply don't agree.
This isn't a pretty picture!
It's an act of cruelty!
A wolf is a noble creature
Living grandly in the wild,
But descendents of his species
Are regularly defiled.
The very shape of this poodle
Is proof of manipulation.
And the multi-coloured bits-and-bobs
Are just a humiliation.
Did anyone ask this dear little dog
If the dye got in his eyes?
Did anyone take any notice
Of his heartfelt whimpering cries?
And when he's paraded for pleasure
(Our pleasure and not his)
Will he have the slightest idea
Of what a Dog Show is?
The colours are vibrant and pretty;
Oh yes, I'll grant you that.
But all pets should be honoured;
Yes, every dog and cat.
I'm not an animal lover;
I haven't even got a pet.
But the sight of this poor little poodle
Is something I wont forget.

An Acrostic

Curmudgeon! You couldn't be ruder!
Aiming a gun at each intruder!
Never saying a pleasant word!
Totally, nastily absurd!
Always looking out for fights!
Never forgetting about your rights!
Kicking down doors and throwing stones!
Each day full of snarls and moans.
Rudeness never wins the day;
Old man! We're going on our way!
Useless to shout your epithets!
Stop your silly snarling threats!

Oh I so agree with you about the things they do to dogs -- and cats! Their ancestors are of the wild and they deserve dignity and respect.
