PAUL’S POOCH PANDER

PAUL’S POOCH PANDER

A neighbor passes through the room,

A shopping cart we assume…

But inside

His four-legged pride,

A grunting chihuahua, well-groomed.

This room through which he’s plowed

Has a sign—no pets allowed—

What could be better

Than skirting the law’s letter,

Running his dog through…under shroud?
