We follow the Leader in rain and in fog
We follow the Alpha Dog.
We hunt and follow the Alpha Dog.
We play and we lick his face
We lie down and sleep when he chooses a place.
The Alpha Dog knows when to run
When to hide from the noonday sun
He picks a height where he can see
In the distance game for he and we.
We follow the Alpha Dog

We run them down, we work as a team,
Baiting and biting the edible dream,
Till they fall like a tide
Their eyes stopped wide
We set our teeth and our fangs on their throats
And the blood runs hot on their furry coats,
The Alpha has led us once more to succeed
Dogs, bitches, puppies- they all will feed.
We follow the Alpha Dog.

We howl at the Moon, the creature of light
And sometimes at dusk or at dawn we will fight,
To establish the order we all must obey
But never will question the Alpha Dog’s way.
We wait, ever faithful his orders to hear
But there will come a time that the Alpha will fear
And the Alpha is tired, too old and too still
And the young dog with ambition will see to the kill.
Then We will follow the Alpha Dog’s will.

I have loved many dogs over the years. From working dogs to fluffy little playthings, but I have always realised that we (the humans) must be part of the pack. Nature can be one of the cruelest masters, unforgiving as she applies her doctrine of 'survival of the fittest'.

Thanx for the back story...do these come to you in a complete form, or in pieces that you work on later? Does the mood strike you while you're doing something else, or come at your calling? Always so interested in the presentation of the creative dance. Hope my questions aren't off putting. I'm noticing that some folks around here (or maybe it's academia) think a question is stating am agenda or bias...when really-it's just curiosity and wanting to learn stuff.

It's usually when I am looking back nostalgically speaking. A quiet moment of memories. :)
