a fight with my own dog, for god’s sake

Competitiveness you went down to Testosterone Village last night
And got loaded. What was I supposed to do with you today,
This morning, when you tried to get me into a fight
With my own dog, for god’s sake, over getting
To the newspaper first?

– Kenneth Koch, “To Competitiveness,” New Addresses
