While walking along a country back road in the Philippines I came across this mangy pup.


Mangy Dog


 


One day as I was walking


Along a filthy island roadó


I came across some mangy dog


Who was begging--just for food.


 


I saw him looking all about


For something he could not findó


So,  I reached into my sack of food


And gave him a  bit of mine.

Hello William,

Brief encounter, deep message. The scenery seems "barriotic" and
probably far from civilization (as most of our islands are) but thesubject (dog) must have wandered off from its home. He touched you and made you write this, mangy dog that he is.
