Snakes and Dogs for Tucker bitten by a rattlesnake on 10-16-10   Leave a comment


just trying to make a living

a little sun, a cool drink, a place to lay our heads

we bite when we need to

we jump when bitten

trying to make a living

like beggars do, like billionaire bankers do

like all the rest of us

warming our skins in the sun

still chilled from a fall night

cold snakes fail to rattle

warm snouts take the bite

all just trying to make a life, trying to make a living

among snakes and dogs

also trying to make a life, trying to make a living
