Ben's Dog - Poem by Sidi J. Mahtrow

They came and took Ben away,
Just after the break of day.
The dog didn't understand
What had happened to his man.

On the front porch, he stay(ed) .
There was no reason for him to stray.
He awaited his master's call
Through the early days of fall.

Neither hunger, thirst nor bitter cold
Took him from this home of old.
Depleted; as days crept by
He watched the ever changing sky.

Finally Ben came; some folks say
And he and his dog went away.
