Creature Comforts Poem by Roger Hayes

Creature Comforts



He kindly took me in
when I had nowhere to go,
for I had been driven out
by the family dog.

He gave me shelter
when it rained,
he gave me warmth
when it was cold.

He shared his salmon
when I was hungry,
he gave me milk
when I was thirsty.

I would sit upon his lap
and he would feed me chicken,
as he ate ice-cream
I would lick the carton.

I sunbathed amid the grasses
I slept under the pampas grass,
he made me feel safe
and I trusted him...

I never knew, life
could be so good,
as I fell asleep
in his arms...
