I witnessed two altercations;
a theme with variations.
Men fighting o’er a patch of pavement;
Dogs fighting o’er a piece of excrement.
The stakes seemed about equal;
The contestants pitched in battle.
With fury they attacked;
Each on the others back.
Autos jockeying for the pole position;
Canines chewing on an old emission.
Skirmishes with a tragicomic ending;
Car crashes and a lot of foul digesting.
As I mentioned I saw two battles;
and the stakes were nearly equal.
