‘petra’ - Poem by Orlando Belo

That dog over there is called Petra,
she sits staring out of the window.
For a while now she’s been whining;
as though she’s filled with sorrow.

She’s probably waiting for her master,
because he often went out alone.
After two days she’s obediently waiting,
by the window of an empty home.

They say it’s six days since he left her
without a meal, a thought, or care,
but he never stepped out of the house,
he left her while he sat in the chair.

    Thats a really sad story. In some other country they would have sent the dog rescue service to take the dog out there. I hope at least the neighbours watch out for Petra. Regards A (Report) Reply
