O Anna Niemus

German Shepherd: Collateral Damage

Her human companion was sent by
the unelected to Iraq.

With no other options, the soldier
gave her to a family which doesn't
want her.

She lies in the back all day, with no
her rope twisted around rocks or
young trees, her water pan
never filled. She is skinny.
She moans in loneliness all
day long.

She's just one more victim
of the family busting regime,
the one supported by
some 'family values' pastors.

    When i first saw my German Shepard, he was chained up in a yard
    beaten by his Chinese owner, some people can be hard
    he now lives a life of freedom, he walks me by the sea
    Roscoe has had me for four years, love has set him free (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
