Black Dog Blues

Just a bit of word-association nothingness from a not so pleasant day.

Black dog of depression
Black ocean, black cloud
Black bucket of tarfeather
Eiderdown shroud
I throw it a stick
But before I can hide
It's panting and slobbering
Back by my side
I run and I run
But it chases me down
'Til I'm trapped in the wings
Drinking port with the clowns
