Dog-and-Pony Show

There is no sin except stupidity

Let your great-great-grandma’s god’s

dogma be your seeing eye


and your hearing ear dog (good

boy!) and let its stride guide you


to let go, let sleeping dogs

lie, get rid of this gay guy’s


gaudy, dog-eared doggerel

before you get the gaybies,


before becoming smitten—

bitten by the bitch’s wit.
