Dog beats dog

When I was a child

my father

had a vicious dog

which he trained

to be

like him –

he would incessantly growl

at each passer by

attempting to bite them

before they had a chance

to bite him.

It’s funny how dogs

mirror their owners’

personalities.

One time the dog

barked at my father,

my father growled

and beat him relentlessly

I felt I was witnessing

a crime

I remember thinking

this world

is dog

beat dog.
