The Dog Lovers - Poem by Spike Milligan

So they bought you
And kept you in a
Very good home
Cental heating
A deep freeze
A very good home-
No one to take you
For that lovely long run-
But otherwise
'A very good home'
They fed you Pal and Chun
But not that lovely long run,
Until, mad with energy and boredom
You escaped- and ran and ran and ran
Under a car.
Today they will cry for you-
Tomorrow they will buy another dog.

    Yes, I can't understand why people want to keep animals in totally unnatural environments. But then I suppose we all are now. (Report) Reply
