991 - The Pack

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week are: 

High-pitched, languid, impish.

The Pack

Do you hear them?
Dog whistles.
Hight pitched
Well pitched
With languid distain
For the ensuing pain
For the flock,
The anxious flock.
Just an eye
For the effect.
Rally the mob.
Bring out the dogs.
Herd them in, 
Round them up
Bring them in
In for the slaughter.
The dogs do their work.
Not innocent
And yet unaware
Naive in their way,
Working dogs.
Just responsive
To the note as pitched.
A note of malevolence
Behind a feigned innocence.
Look!  I have clean hands!
Nothing impish here,
Not just mischief.
Much nastier.

You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
