POETRY: ELECTRIC FENCE BOOGIE BY PAUL TRISTRAM

Walking along the side of the golf course
one day, my dog banged its arse
against a white electrical fence wire
(Put there to keep the rabbits out!)
After yelping and jumping like crazy
it turned around to see only me
in the nearby vicinity and I got the blame,
even though I was thirty odd foot away.
You cannot explain electricity to a dog
and you shouldn’t feel guilty for something
which you have not taken any part in,
yet, I tried both for awhile until sensibly
deciding to take our walks elsewhere.
