Self Respect

Self Respect

Wandering along
I espied a mongrel,
Scrawny, scaled and starved.

Rich lady walking
A hefty dog, threw
Biscuits to her pet.

One rolled over to the stray
Which it tried to grab
The monster growled fiercely.

Out came a skinny lad
Clad in tattered clothes
Grabbed the stray lovingly.

Glared at both the lady and dog
Stamped on the biscuit
With contempt in his eyes.

And from his trouser
Drew a stale loaf
Fed his pet proudly!
