Tanka is a classic form of Japanese poetry related to the haiku with five unrhymed lines of five, seven, five, seven, and seven syllables(5/7/5/7/7).
-----
Here, In this Tanka, dog is a metaphor. It is a kind of political satire.

Hot Dog

 

 

Dog bites innocent beings

Barks aloud to brag about

Shatters peace around

Licks the feet of greedy and

Powerful business tycoons
