The Animal

By
A dog is there, listening,
I am there, complaining.

A dog gives away all his love,
I take all the love I can find.

A dog will do anything to please his master,
I want to be pleased by others.

A dog is friends with anyone who wants him,
I am friends with only people I choose.

A dog gives everything he has,
I take what I can get.

A dog is there no matter who you are and what you have done,
I pretend to be there and to care.

A dog pays constant attention to what you want,
I want constant attention from the world.

A dog would never hate or lie,
I hate and lie to protect my happiness.

A dog would never start a war,
I start wars and claim I want peace.

A dog dares to trust and to believe in love from me,
I fear trust, even from those who love me.

A dog accepts,
I judge.

I can talk, but
A dog can read my mind.

Who is the “animal” who needs to be taught?
