Treasure Island

Prabhakar Subramaniam


A dog's life


I am glad for you

That you have got a leg-up

And a hefty raise to go with it

A private vehicle to drive you around

To make you feel important

Removed from the rest

I guess, you have to be away from home longer

Tethered to the phone more

Keep awake even when your eyes cry for sleep

It'll soon get to be so

You'll feel like a slave

Existing solely for your master

Who never seems to be satisfied

With what you're doing

And keeps cracking the whip

And wants you to run faster

Jump faster, and bark louder.

You soon start feeling like a dog

Looking to please and loving the attention

Tirelessly wagging the tail

I know, I have been through the hoop too.
