Human Nature
by DCDave

As I was wheeling down the road,
Well lost in reverie,
A yapping little spotted cur
Came out and nipped at me.

Your anger would have equaled mine
Had you been in my stead.
You might have even tried like me
To kick him in the head.

Then as I was cooling down,
Not far from home and shade.
A big dog sprang into my path,
But he felt nothing of my wrath,
For here it has to be confessed
No rage rose up within my breast,
I could but be afraid.

David Martin
