A Little Imagery

A Little Bit of Imagery

Close your eyes and imagine this.
No, you'd better not close your eyes,
or you can't read what's next!

Your sitting quietly at the shore,
enjoying a picnic lunch with your children,
when all of a sudden
a dog comes out of nowhere
and he's approaching rather quickly,
teeth bared, the hair on its back raised.
In that one instant,
just how does that make you feel?

Now, try to imagine you are a little bird, instead
Or a doe on the fringe with her young.

Uncontrolled dogs are becoming common along our wild shores.
And people don't seem to understand why it is important
to keep their dogs controlled,
I don't know,
like maybe

Forget that it's the law.
