Signs: Dogs


Our Shithouse Is Still An Outhouse

The photo for this one shows an adapted toilet on a National Trust property at Dunwich Heath. Adapted toilets are not necessarily accessible. Typically the best of a bad job. This toilet is next to a store room. In between there is a tap and a dog bowl. We are clearly linked. Hence another day devoted to writing more doggerel.


The shit house is still an outhouse
We share it with the beasts
With different bowls
And different howls
We wonder which is least

The dog loves to be outdoors
But stays close to the stores
He laps up his drink
And still we think
We could ask for more

Our shit house is still an outhouse
Its where we’re meant to be
We’re still locked out
The government doubts
They can set our people free
