The Dilemma of waiting

The dog…. O the dog…
You are the symbol of waiting.

They said you ate the fat bone
But only because you waited.

And I dare ask O dog

Is it because other dogs were blind?
Or because they were generous?

Patience is not complacency
Waiting responsibly is patience.

When you till the ground and sow
Then you wait for the harvest.

When you do the needful
Then you wait for success.

The “patient dog” has long been misunderstood.

He has been labelled patient
But could have been the runt of the litter.

To wait or not
To be patient or not

That’s the dilemma of today
The tragedy of the choice.
