Heaven has gone to the dogs

Frank Criscenti

has gone to the dogs
God brought them in
because angels thought them cute
and now
a nasty little terrier
sits on a special
puffy throne
at the right hand of God
(He feeds it pate
with a golden spoon)
Now the mutts fly around
and don't clean up after themselves
The little ones yap
whenever a new pilgrim comes in
and some of them howl
when the angels strum their harps.
