The Ungrateful Dog - Poem by Bamisaye Adeniran

Took you out of the land of the outcast
And out of the hand of starvation
Brought shelter in the midst rain
And the sun rented the atmosphere.

Brought back the stolen treasure
Took away nakedness
And made you the model of all
And all white balls became your slave.

All lift my name high above
And the air rented my name
And the birds sing my name
To the ears of all.

Then you came barking
And I became your favorite bone
You’ve made me your overnight enemy
You ungrateful dog.
