From a dog

Picture taken on 30/04/2011

The Delhi summers are too hot

In the Red Fort I have found a cool spot

Uh-ho here comes the shutterbug lady

There is no time to groom and look dandy

But what’s this?!! Oh bother, the security guards!

How dare they chase me, the blackguards!

Where can a poor dog go in this sweltering heat?!

You people stay in sheltered houses so neat!

Grrr… For my misfortune, the lady is to be blamed

But for her the guards would never have chased!

Sigh! Now I have to go find another place

Jeez! You mean humans! Give homeless dogs also some space!
