(POETRY) A beast of gray

A beast of gray
The snout of black
A slobbering- sniffling
Groveling mutt

An avatar of ancient
Unfiltered ferocity
Reduced to a complacent
Howling- aging- pedigree

Erected on all four
Tumbling incessantly
A breed to meet and rub
But failure on the hunt

It's doings make it weak
Cowardice to the bone
Yet children love it
A well sent present
Some ties best left broken
