Tug of War | Poetry 101 Rehab

Written in response to this week’s Poetry 101
Rehab hosted by Andy Townend.
Prompt: “The Rope”

“Tug of War”

A rope comes equipped
with two ends, a dog
attached to each
for balance, amusement,
mutual purpose: Fun.

The battle takes place
out of reach. No fouls!

Sometimes, there’s a winner,
not always the same one,
chewing on the rope end.
Sometimes they share.

But mostly mock battles
dissolve … lose themselves
in friendship.
