Dog cries

By Wendy Norman

A dog is so clever he needs to run free
Feel wind on his back until eternity
Chasing birds and lizards, sniffing out rabbits
He cherishes moments to refine his habits

A dutiful companion loving faithfully
Aiming to please so earnestly
But a dog that sits down in a cage
He can’t see through his bars of rage

Growing insane with sadness he shows
Cowering with tuneful fear is all he knows
He can cry all day his lonely song
Pleading his freedom from this wrong

The caged dog barks with fearful lust
Of things unknown that he can’t trust
His heart is broke and knows no love
The only touch he’s known is a shove

A dog that’s free is loved and cherished
Trained and fed not undernourished
He dreams of another day
Where birds sing and rabbits lay

Unlike caged dog that dreams his sorrow
Wondering how he will live through tomorrow
