The Depressed Dog

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Little Depressed Dog

Little Depressed Dog

Come little doggy, get out of your lull

Come play with me and stop being dull

Come run, bark and catch this ball

The weather is good, nice cool breeze as the tree leaves fall

Don’t be depressed little doggy, you have a new owner now

I know you were neglected and rejected somehow

I bought you a nice bed and a shiny doggy bowl

Plus a toy cat, a new mat and a rubber owl

You don’t have to be depressed little doggy, I will show you much care

I will never leave you alone out there

I will never hit you or treat you harsh

Together we are forever like green on grass

Come snuggle with me little doggy, let me read you a book

About a dog that traveled the world and made it shook

You are my pal, my friend and my family

Together we will be living happily.

that man has hate in his heart Brenda....karma.

Oh I love this Clive and I love animals. This is one of your best!

It is so sad to see animals mistreated.

Locally a man threw a 12 week old puppy out the window after severely beating him.. the puppy died.

I have no empathy for this man. The news of this poor puppy breaks my heart. He didn't have a chance for a good life.

I commend everyone for reaching out to help animals. We really do not know what they have endured. Be patient. He will love you unconditionally.

Great write.

Thats true Lora.

I'm sorry to hear that this little doggy is depressed but now with a caring and loving owner, I do think his mood will greatly improve! Wonderful poem, Clive. I like your message about taking good care of your pets and not neglecting or being harsh with them. And yes, we should adopt not shop! So many awesome animals in shelters who need loving homes. Your health will benefit too as a result of having a pet!

thanks Pam

That dog does look sad. I hate to think about ant dog or cat being abused as they can't really fight back. I think your poem says it all.

Go to an animal shelter Ruby and get a cute pup.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on December 04, 2019:

I love it. I want a doggie!

This is sweet. It reminds me of the cats that have entered my life from sad situations. I treasure them.
