Invasive Species

Invasive species,

pipsqueaky canine.

I call it cat or rat,

all eight pounds of it.

Revered in countries great distances away,

lion dog.

 

No roar here,

just a sputtered cough,

its fierce intention not taken seriously

by would-be foes or humankind.

 

But this lion dog,

silly canine,

raising his leg with instinctual purpose,

makes us laugh,

our serious intentions

leaving for great distances,

far away.
