When inner angst soars too high
Shanahan asks to be let out
To roll around in snow banks,
Nose-rooting like a trained hog
For legendary les truffes noir.
Dare I suggest psychiatrists
(aka medical ladologists)
Construct some clinical trials,
Snow –rolling versus Prozac
(or any equiv Rx du jour).
Might I be wrongly mistaking
My needs with my dog’s, what some shrinks
Sometimes deign to call transference
(so to sound like elegant science).
