Not a Dog

I am not a dog

beneath your feet

a squirming, whimpering

creature in your path

belly up

submitting to your rage

not knowing the reason

just taking the punishment

and when the storm is over

I lick your boots

fawning at your knee

begging forgiveness

for sins I don’t remember

and contenting myself

with a pat on the head

from my Master

Not a Dog
