BEING HUMAN IS AN ABSURD CAREER CHOICE

I have a problem, maybe somebody can help me out here.

Hello! I have a minor problem: I am not human. I look like a human, I pretend to be one but I am not one. I am really a barking star, rejected by the skies because I bark. They cast me down to earth in human form. After 37 years of this form, I am beginning to get fed up. Wearing this human skin is like wearing a pair of knickers that keeps getting stuck up my bum. I have been labeled mad but I am not - I am a barking star. Should I stop this pretence or carry on with it in order to be accepted?
