It's all in the title
"Hound Dog Face" by EricDaGoose
I am a man, in this world, trying to find my place.
Twice as hard for me, you see, I've a hound dog face.
As I walk on down the street, people stop and stare.
Eyes that loop and cheeks that droop, I guess they think It's rare.

They won't talk, they only mock, I see their smiles shrink.
Someone with a hound dog face, "who knows what he might think?"
Hard to tell, I went to school, to get my third degree.
One in Spanish, one in French, and philosophy...

I understand, what you feel, but do not know why.
I am just like you my friend ... don't we both like pie?
It's very hard, but I'm strong, never hear me pout.
If one day you'd wear my shoes, you would hear them shout...

"Hey there hound! you from the pound? Why you look that way?"
Words that hurt, short and curt, the price that I must pay.
"If you please would go away, never show your face.
That'd be great, you're ugly mate, save us from disgrace."

If I only were a dog, I might have a chance.
I'd find friends, I'd find some love, even find romance.
As for now, I'm just a man, think I found my place.
I'll just be unique and free with my hound dog face.


Author Notes
First of all let me clarify ... I myself do not have a hound dog face... this is a character that I created... I am speaking in the poem as the character... also if you happen to be a narcissist I am not talking about you okay if I touched a nerve with this poem I apologize sincerely I really do... if you don't like the subject matter please just stick to the rating guidelines.... please do not take this poem personally and please do not think I have a hound dog face LOL... oh yes, and if you are by chance on the fence about giving me a six star review please take the time to read it again.

Thank You
