Twas a fortnight ago in my van-a-mini/I became witness to a modern day pity/A spunky, young, vivacious lad/Tethered to his woesome dad/To my wife I groaned out a "Sheesh!"/"Look at that kid! He's sportin' a leash!"
The next time you see something that looks strange to you -- like a kid on a leash -- stop before you judge. There just might be a really reasonable explanation. And, more importantly, there might be something you can do to help.
