Mindless Mammalian Struggles

In a yard littered with sticks,

Knox and his dog friend

 claim the same stick

and refuse to let go.

In a lot where empty

parking spaces abound,

two humans claim

the same parking place 

 and both refuse to budge.

Scarcity mindsets in the midst 

of abundance or 

senseless manifestations of dominance?

Who knows?  But unlike the humans,

Knox and his friend

seem to enjoy the game.
