Month of Poetry – PLEASE COME – #Poem – #ASPCA

Someone, can you hear me,

Cry inside this shed?

When they first took me home,

I had a fancy bed.


It was Christmas time and,

To the pet store people came.

They hugged and cuddled me,

I even got a name!


But the holidays snuffed out.

Then the kids began to pout,

“Who’s gonna feed him?”

“Who’s gonna let him out?”


“I’m too little.” “I’m in a rush.”

“Figure it out,” Dad said.

When no one even bothered,

I wound up in this shed.


Someone, please pick me up,

And find a family,

Who’ll take the time, make a pledge,

Of responsibility.


Sure, it seems like fun,

Finding a pet under the tree.

But, some don’t take good care.

Please, come and rescue me!

    It breaks my heart to see that. Excellent poem to get the point across. They are God’s creatures and deserve our respect.

      Thanks, Sherry. Those commercials break me down every time, and one day I just couldn’t get it out of my head so I wrote about it. :0)

    I had to leave and come back to this Donna. My heart hurts when I think of God’s precious creatures being so unloved. I truly believe animals have their place in heaven and a soul. Just look in their eyes.
