Milica Franchi De Luri


In some countries they eat dogs**


I'm so sad,

beyond sad

i am mad

i think I'll cry

for all the dogs they fry

I need to scream in someones ear;

Do i make myself clear! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

You can not eat dog

You can eat a hog

even a frog (like in France)

but definitely notttttttttttttttt a dog

with big brown eyes

cooked in a burger,

served with fries?

A dog?

My best friend Snoopy

could and up in someones soup?

How low can they stoop?



In China, Philippines, Korea, Vietnam dog meat is consumed by some people, not because of starvation, but as a delicacy

    yep
    I have heard that too
    but then dear
    look at it this way
    there are also people who
    have pet hogs, and chuks
    what about that?
    dont we eat them
    so dear
    one man's food is another man's poison.
    Lets respect each other
    for not what they eat
    but for what they are.

    Lovely poem, truly introspective
    I too love cannines
    your poem surely deserves a tenner
    love anjali (Report) Reply

    In principal I agree with your sentiment, as I love my dog; but that is only from the point of view of a well fed English woman.
    On the other hand: if my children were starving, he would have to go in the pot.
    Love the poem though.

    hello milica. Nice poem. I am Filipino and i have dogs as pets. I don't eat dog meat. Dogs are our friends. I support your cry and i deeply sympathize with your cause.Don't worry the Philippine government already passed a law against the cruelty to animals, dogs included. (Report) Reply

    not everyone in the philippines eat dog.and they aren't served with fries.
    nice poem anyway. the government should read this and give the poor something else to eat and stay alive. (Report) Reply
