The Dog Next Door

Look at her face
You can see it in her eyes
Always chained up
Even when she goes for a walk.
The defeated look of submission,
To all mankind
And even submissive to those
That watch her from behind.
I can't help but feel sad
When I watch her from our big yard,
And if she were mine
She would run free and never be tied.
The neighbor confessed
that he hates to tie her up,
So I simply said,
"All you need to do
is to put your gate back up.
You have a nice fenced in yard
much larger than ours....
and so what if you have to
climb out of your car
to open the gate
At least your puppy
will be happy and safe."
