Diogenes The Dog

—for Elizabeth Boleman-Herring, 
who's always known the difference. 
Too many thought he was just 
A flea-bitten louse slumming 
In an earthenware jar; still fewer saw 
He was much more than that--a literate 
Chigger who bit only those who knew 
No better than to bite off more 
Than toothless curs could chew.
