Howler

Nixon took his dog for a walk
It stopped
Sniffed the grass
Peed on a pine cone

The stars twinkled as if to ask the great man
“Why Why’d ya do it?”
The dog looked up at him as if to ask the same question
Nixon didn’t have an answer
So he let the leash go and walked into the night

The dog howled
Calling to its master
But no one was home
