WHY THE DOG BARKS






WHY THE DOG BARKS


One dog, being hunted down
somewhere in the neighborhood,
because he barks incessantly
English: Saarloos Wolfdog male Polski: Samiec ...all night and all day long

Such a bother!
A distraction
from important human stuff;
"What the hell is it barking for?"
This tale could be the answer...

~
Since ancient times wolf tribes
used their tunes to lead them
(like our forefathers' fife and drum)
to brave the horns of prey,
spare their family's starvation.

Inheritors of these special wolves
still follow natural commands;
the urgency of their song,
despite a human throng
demanding their death
before long,
may be a final warning
of what we're doing wrong
