Into the park

The man on the television is having surgery
and he will probably die because his life is filled
with love and laughter and his wife is expecting
a baby and all the actors playing doctors
believe he will be absolutely fine. I saw a dog
yesterday run across the road without looking
left and right and the cars just drove
and the dog made it to the other side
and into the park and its owner didn’t say a word
and oh look the man survived his surgery.
