11/27/22 – And this is why—
“Please send me somebody who really does care.
I’m so tired of running and sick with despair.
My body is aching and filled with such pain;
Everyday I hope, as I run in the rain
That someone will love me and give me a home,
A warm cosy bed, and food of my own.
My owner left me alone in the yard…
I watched them move house , and that was so hard.
So I waited a while, then went on my way
To rummage in bins and live as a stray.
But now, I’m so tired and hungry and cold;
And I’m so afraid that I will never grow old.
They’ve chased me with sticks and hit me with straps
While I run the streets just looking for scraps.
I’m not really bad, please help if you can,
For I have become just a “Victim of Man.”
I’m wormy, I’m scruffy, and I’m riddled with fleas;
And all that I want is an owner to please.
If you find one for me, I’ll try to be good.
I won’t scratch the carpet; I’ll do as I should.
I’ll love them, play with them, and try to obey.
I will be so grateful if they’ll let me stay.
I don’t think I’ll make it too long on my own,
‘Cause I’m getting weak and I’m so all alone.
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry,
I’m so afraid, that I’m gonna die.
I’ve got so much love and devotion to give
I should be given a new chance to Live.
My friends today, this is my prayer ,
That someone will find me, who will really care.
That you will help, get me out of the cold .
And together we can be friends as we grow old.”
