Dog Fighting


Dog fighting
Just a sadistic contest
Two dogs put in a pit
Tearing each other to bits
Til one will not or cannot continue

Dog fighting
Injuries, severe or even fatal
With the powerful jaws of a pit bull
They inflict
Painful bruises
Deep wounds
And even broken bones
And you thought it hurt when
You sprained your ankle

Dog fighting
Those poor animals
How would you like it if
Animals made US
Attack other humans?
Dieing of blood loss
Shock
Dehydration
Exhaustion
Or infection
Hours or days after the fight

Dog fighting
To train these beasts
We use smaller attack animals
Like Fluffy, your cat
Or Bun Buns, your bunny
Or maybe even Chocolate, your small dog
Possibly even the cute kittens
From the 'FOR A GOOD HOME' box

Dog fighting
Spectators and dog owners
Placing bids of thousands of dollars
On their favorite dog
When it looses... the money...
Gone from their reach
Placing bets of drugs
And trading drugs too
Resulting in the worst place
For adults and children

Dog fighting
Illegal in all 50 states
Then, why?
Why put those dogs
Through it all?
Because we think they're stupid...
But what do they think of us? ? ?

P.S. I did research on this subject because it is something I am interested in and I thought that I would inform some people about the bad things that are happening in the USA and around the world. I hope you enjoyed! ! !
