The Abandoned Dog. - Poem by Geoffrey Fafard

Her father was a Kenworth her mother a crusty Mack
She was considered by the toughest
To be slightly off the track

She didn't take to patting and liked the junkyard crowd
You could see where the fleas had been
She could howl and growl pretty fearsome loud

She came into this world from the bottom of a ditch
Tough and rusty. strong and heavy minded
Not your average normal bitch

She is alone and still and a silent doggy now
Behind the barbed wire fence next door
Her only friend a cow…..
