I would like to register my support for Mike Greene's initiatives for restricting dogs, and record in verse a personal experience:

7am on Hampstead Heath.

They crowded like the sands upon the shore

Stretched out along some South Pacific bay,

Infinities arrived, then more, then more,

Engulfed in a sub-optimal bouquet.

It's better not to tangle with a pup

Whose tongue is hanging down, and stock is up.
