Super Short Story (240): Dog
She squirmed and scowled at the person
coming the other way with a dog on a leash.
She was after all, brought up by her parents
to believe that dogs are filthy.
So much so, that she never really took a closer look
to experience their presence,
to decide if it was really true of every dog,
including those cared well by humans.
So much so, that she never questioned
the actual hygiene of other animals,
including those she eats – before and after slaughter.
How clean can a carcass be?
