harold and rufus

harold stood on the corner
the light would not turn green
his dog rufus was beside him
his collar was shiny and clean

how many long hours
had harold stood on this spot?
he tried so hard to remember
but he could not

was red alive and green dead?
or the other way around?
the cars went by forever
but he did not hear a sound

rufus remained as faithful
as he had ever been
through rain and snow and lightning
his collar was shiny and clean

harold looked across the street
to fate he would not yield
red would not last forever
green would be revealed
