Humane Treatment

Such a pleasant day
I would have you both
 going your wild way
 in this idle neighborhood
only circumstances have tethered
 us together
Such eagerness
 pulling so hard
 you choke yourselves
 weezing in recovery
 only to choke yourselves all over again
Never realizing I just want a pleasant walk

I ponder the cure:
Abrupt turns fore and aft
Until your ears remain half–cocked
 on me
Never realizing my purpose
Just wanting a pleasant walk
