If Dogs Could Talk

If dogs could talk

How eloquent their speech

On punishment’s collossal folly

Human’s great logical fallacy

Belief in “teaching a lesson”

Through shaming degradation

Behavioral change wrought

Via retributive power displays

Well may pooches cower fearful

In face of fury’s might

And later, learning naught

Bite the hand that’s beaten

Or traumatized, overwrought

Piddle again on the floor
