My two dogs stand poised for action
at the foot of my bed, their bodies taut
eyes focused hard out the window
the barking growling temporarily at a halt.
Those children walking by had better think
twice before pulling anything evil!
That delivery truck will never stop on our street 
again if he knows what’s good for him.
My neighbor’s dog will not trespass
in front of our house again, oh no, oh no!
Everyone passing on two feet or more is reviled.
And yet when all dies down and my two dogs
are once again lying curled in two furry balls

anyone would think, How sweet they are.
