She must be something ugly, Repugnant to the eye, For them to charge this lady And think the charge would fly. It happened in New Hampshire, A state that’s rather small; Its significance is minimal As states go all in all. The charge they lodged against her Is one you’ve heard before; Cruelty to an animal, An act that I’d deplore. Specifically the lady charged With staring at a dog; Taunting and harassing it While in a drunken fog. Confronted by policemen Responding to a call, She mocked their German Shepherd Which threatened her to maul. Ogling the canine, The dog became unnerved By the constant staring The dog felt undeserved. So they booked the lady For cruelty to the beast, And off to court they hauled her But now she’s been released. The judge, he watched the video Taken at the scene, Determined cuter ladies Everywhere were likely seen. He said had she been pretty, And a quarter of her weight, The cops would not have booked her And charged her in the State. Even though she’s ugly It’s not considered cruel, To stare without distraction At animals that drool. The judge dismissed the charges, And that seems apropos; Beauty’s found within the eye Beholders only know.
