Country Fair by Charles Simic

>If you didn't see the six-legged dog,

>It doesn't matter.

>We did, and he mostly lay in the corner.

>As for the extra legs,

 

>One got used to them quickly

>And thought of other things.

>Like, what a cold, dark night

>To be out at the fair.

 

>Then the keeper threw a stick

>And the dog went after it

>On four legs, the other two flapping behind,

>Which made one girl shriek with laughter.

 

>She was drunk and so was the man

>Who kept kissing her neck.

>The dog got the stick and looked back at us.

>And that was the whole show.
