vive Stanley

Stanley has always been there
right through history
but it’s not a mystery
you see he’s got
this time machine he uses a lot
(and that’s why his paws are smoking hot)

for example

that’s him
howling with the crowd as the gates go in
at the fall of La Bastille
further research will reveal
a lurcher suspiciously like Stanley
behaving particularly badly
four years on
sans-culottes in La Place de la Révolution
adding his bark to the bloody confusion
as they lead out a trembling Louis Seize
to suffer the verdict of la population Francaise
