The Dog Who Had No More Master.....


there is this new house
beside Petron

it is the house of a new couple
loving as they
are
they never had
a child

so they keep a puppy
instead

until one day the wife
met an accident
and instantly died

this leaves a man in
extreme sorrow
drinking his
life
away

and this leaves
the dog alone in the house
which was later sold

the dog has no one
to feed it and
most of the time spends
its days
in the Petron gasoline
station

which made the gasoline boys
take their time
feeding it
until it became their
property and friend

soon all the gasoline boys
had to leave
seeking greener
pastures
somewhere
else

t his leaves the dog alone
again
sitting on the side
of the gasoline station
still dreaming
for its long lasting
master

of course,
there is none
and this leaves the dog
alone again

unfed, waiting for its
life span to
end

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
