Mean dog

out on the chain

chained to the earth

Barking

Incessant

So cold

Hungry

Tireless

barking in anguish

it is just his way

to get through another day

His master watches television

Angered by his barking, whining

Hits him, hard, his canine skull cracked

wracked with misunderstanding

and so much pain

Why am I here

Does he think this?

Not unlike a small child

asking for shelter, food, and

God forbid

Love
