Should Leash Laws

                                                                                                       govern
a canine
                                                                                              meeting,
                        their paws
                                                                                                       all over
instinct’s
                                                                                  greeting,
it’s we   
                                                                                  who do
              the dancing
                                                                                                       there, lest
              our restraints
                                                                                            ourselves
ensnare.
                                        Over the head,
between
                                                                                  the legs,
                        we tangle
                                                                                                       with our
rules
                                                                                              & regs
                                                     like film
in a projector’s
                                                                                                       cogs,
                                        reclaim
              the lead,
                                                                                  then blame
the dogs.
