COVID Poetry Corner: “A Dog’s Insight Into COVID”

A Dog’s Insight Into Covid-19

Owners in and rarely out
no place to go
except for the excitement of grocery shopping
meaning there is a ritual hour long walk
with us and our dear Westie
trundling along all around the hood
talking with strangers and their mutts
while the furry ones smell each other butts
here and there it is getting very familiar
as hundreds of pet owners are caught in this similar
but little pooch is enjoying the daily trek
with his owners
not understanding the COVID virus curse
paces with a smile on his face
crashing out exhausted due to the long pace
not realizing his big treat
is but a side effect of a nasty virus that never seems in a retreat
