Treats and Shocks

You are not Pavlov
I am not a dog
One day I will say
Fuck you and your treat.

Because I know the shock comes next.

I cannot understand
the mindset of loyalty
that dogs have
to their owners

Accepting.treats and shocks.

The enticement of treats
sends dogs running
in spite of the shocks
they receive from their owners

Dogs remember the best
Our primitive nature

Our human nature
hopefully negates

No more treats if.treats include shocks.

    Wonderful to have your voice in the kingdom again.
