A PUPPYS TALE. A PUPPYS TALE.

I wake up freezing cold, all on my own,
I cannot find my mommy, I’m completely alone.
I had a warm bed, toys and bones to chew,
Lots of hugs and kisses and long walks too.
She would tell me all her secrets, give me lots to eat,
Biscuits and dog food and even share her meat.
But things started to change, slowly at first,
I didn’t get so many hugs or the walks, which was worse.
I had to use the garden, but she didn’t like the mess,
And soon her kisses and cuddles became less and less.
A man started visiting he didn’t like me at all,
He would never play with me, not even throw my ball.
He took me for a long ride, in the car today,
Threw me in a field and quickly drove away.
I really miss my mommy, I hope she misses me,
Perhaps she will come and find me and bring me some tea.
It’s getting really dark now and the moon’s starting to peep,
I need to find some food and somewhere warmer to sleep.
There are a lot of different noises and strange smells I cannot see,
I really hope my mommy comes looking for me.
