Allison Morris #9 'In-Human'

Slinking, growling,
filthy, stinking- 
prowling, clawing, 
vicious and scarred.

Hatred is a wild dog,
mindlessly snapping,
foaming, irate, demented.
Howling and bleeding,
alight with violence.

In millions of hearts,
the dog could not be calmed.

Hatred won today.

The heart-dog is just a stray, surely
no one is born savage
and most dogs, with patience,
can be calmed
and tamed
and sung to sleep.
