It’s a Dog’s Life For Me
I’d like to come back
In my next life
As a dog
A dog’s only worry
Is its next meal
All it has to do
Is wag its tail
And look cute
And someone will feed him
And give him water
A dog has no worries
No cares at all
And when a Dog
Wants some loving
All it needs to do
Is find the nearest
Female dog
And enjoy himself
Without guilt
And without worrying
About getting married
Or having an affair
Just simple
Sex in the doggie way
Nothing simpler 
Than that
A dog’s life 
Is the life for me?
the dogs of war are howling
The Dogs of War
Have been set free
Of their cage
And are out
Howling at the moon
The Dogs of War
Have been set free
To wreck what havoc
Might be
Yes, the Dogs of War
The Hell Hounds 
Have bound out of their cages
Sniffed about
And smiled
At the destruction they saw
They knew soon 
They would be in their element
As the world descends into chaos
The world saw
The face of pure evil
That fine September morning
A morning like any other morning
Until a fateful moment
When two planes
Came out of the sky
And destroyed
The center of world capitalism
In an act of horrific violence
An act of such evil
That is beyond the comprehension
Of mere mortal man
Surely there must 
Be a reason why
That particular day
The world almost ended
The Dogs of war
Are at foot
The chaos is upon us
The evil grows and grows
And dark noises are heard
Here and there
A Jehad had been launched
By the holly lunatics 
Misguided warriors
Who thought they were fighting
The great Satan
Not knowing that their hearts and minds
Were corrupted and controlled
By Satan himself
Somewhere in the world
That morning 
A door opened
And a man walked through
Flipped a switch
And let loose
The chaos that ensured
The world watched with horror
And fascination
As in real time
A dynamite action movie unfolded
Only this was not no movie, punk
It was real life
Live and uncensored
With the music of the devil
Playing at full volume
As people died 
Burning alive
And the dogs of war
They knew soon
They would be in their element
As America
The Sleeping Giant
Again woke up
And realized
That they would have to fight back
Against their enemies
The war machine 
Came to life
The plans came out of the books
The military might was unleashed
And the Dogs of war 
Smiled and howled at the moon
The machinery of war
Once unleashed
Can’t easily be stopped
There is a certain cruel logic
That demands that the war go on 
And people die
And people suffer
And the stock market crashes
And the evil that men do
Goes on and on and on
The Cosmic Dog from Goa
My final time with God 
Happened a year latter 
I was staying down in Goa
With my wife
Enjoying being with her
After our reconciliation
We stayed at the Taj Mahal Goa
Living like Kings and Queen 
Just for a few days
High up on a hill 
Overlooking the beach
Every morning I went down to the beach
And did yoga by the water
While contemplating life
And every morning
I saw the same dog
Not just a dog 
But a cosmic dog 
Filled with the divine spark of God
And the dog recognized me
And spoke to me and I knew
That God was present once more
In the face of the that cosmic dog
Kindred spirit 
perhaps to the cosmic cat
that had save my soul
in Berkeley so long ago
I told the dog everything 
And he just looked at me 
With those soulful eyes of his
And I knew he knew that I knew
That he was possessed by God
God had sent him to me
To make sure that I was on the right path
That the reconciliation that God had promoted 
Was on track that I was back with my wife 
And that everything was the way it should be
Again I asked God whether he was Jesus or Allah
Or Brahmin or Gannesh or Buddha
God the cosmic dog just stared at me
I finally asked him directly 
Say if you are God the God of Jesus
Bark once
The Dog looked at me and barked
I said well if you are Allah bark twice
The dog barked twice 
Well are you buddha then bark three times if yes
The god dog barked three times
Hmm well are you Satan
The dog growled at me 
And I knew I had gone to far
Finally I was at peace
And for the next three days
The God Dog was my constant companion
And I knew God for the final time 
In my life
Agnostic Dyslectic Wonders if There is a Dog
an agnostic dyslectic
stays up all night
wondering if there is a dog
the Buddhists wonder 
about the Buddha nature of the dog
the evangelicals are sure that there is a dog
and you must follow their dog
or go to hell 
for following another’s dog
the Muslims agree 
there is only one dog
and the dogs 
smile at the foolishness
of the human race
of course, there is a dog
and they are the master race
as they growl at their owners
who bow down 
and clean up their mess

I Want a Dog’s Life

I want a dog’s life

That’s what I want in my next life
All a Dog needs to do
is be cute

And his master will feed him

It is a dog’s life for me

The Messenger Dog of God

One day

While studying in Rome
s a priest

I notice a small white dog

Staring at me

He glances at me

Indicating that I am to follow him

I get up

And follow this strange dog

He leads me deep 
the hidden depths

Of the Vatican

Finally stopping by a door
I open the door

And see St Peter there

He smiles

Dismisses the dog

Who moves on down the hall

Finished with his cosmic duty

As the secret messenger of God

All in a days work

I ask why am I here?

St Peter says

Why are any of us here?

It is time for you to go

But I don’t want to go

Don’t want to leave this mortal plane

St Peter smiles

Says it is time to go

I wake up

Back in my bed

With my wife

And realize it was all a dream

It was not yet time

To go

But I am afraid

I will find the messenger dog
Outside my door

Any day now

The grim reaper waits

And it will soon be my time
