The Bark of the Black Dog

Let the black dog bark

it may stop him from biting,

let him wear himself out

so he will be too tired for fighting.

Let the black dog get bored

once you show him no reaction,

let him get frustrated at knowing

he has failed in his mission.

Let the black dog loose

so he may move on to another poor soul,

let him know with confidence

you have regained control.

Let the black dog bark

for he cannot hurt you anymore,

let him look you in the eye as you tell him

he is no longer your provocateur.
