Is it too much to ask?

Scott Hutchison, 60


This poem is a personal observation on the issue of dog fouling perpetrated by a minority(?) of dog owners around Prestwick in South Ayrshire. However it could easily apply to many other areas of Scotland and the UK.

It is intended to make those responsible think about their actions (or inaction) in failing to pick up after their pet.

I have tried to use humour and provoke a reaction and / or discussion but, if nothing else, it allowed me to have a personal rant.

The poem was written following walks with my own dog around Prestwick where the issue of fouling appears to have increased in recent months.
