Metamorphosis by Richard Tornello

I can't decide if I should read this as a literal metamorphosis where the narrator wakes up as a dog and discovers life is actually easier that way,
or if I should read it as the story of a henpecked man/husband realizing his true place in the household. :P

I'm guessing the former is what Rick intended, but the latter might be even funnier.

Either way it seems like the life of a dog might not be so bad.

Can confirm, Dog's life is pretty good.
Doggerel is a derogatory term for verse considered of little literary value.

Re: Metamorphosis by Richard Tornello

not a hen-pecked husband but close, the mental change required from a life as an independent consultant to an employee.
