The Dogs (after Diogenes)

March 12, 2012

The dogs of Athens
Run wild in the street
Snap at their masters’ feet
And yet they are celebrated

The dogs of New York
Howl through the night
Cover the pavement with shite
And yet they are tolerated

The dogs of Liverpool
Are chained to the post
Perform tricks for their host
And so they are despised.
