‘snap!

getty image terrierHe’s an armchair vigilante,
posse of one, all fur and fury

signifying only
that he wants us to know

he is doing watchdogly duty
bark by yelp by frenzied yap

from the comfort of the upstairs
stuffed chair where he otherwise would nap.

WP Daily Post – and sadly, not my photo; though if I had had my camera, would have pictured his wooly head barely rising above the flowered arm of the chair whence his commotion continuously cascades down the stairs.
