The Brown Dogs

A lament for overlooked writers …

I once worked in a dogs’ home
And those adopted first
Were the showy, young or cute ones
While those that came off worst
Were older, brown and medium-sized
Quite average you might say.
But still they hoped their turn might come
For all dogs have their day.



Stories that matter. Emotion first and foremost.
