Vick's Dogs

How can they hurt you?
Slaughter you,
starve you?
How can they watch
as you are destroyed?

How can they beat you?
Drowned you,
and leave you?
How can they jeer
and applaud and enjoy?

Enjoy that you’re suffering,
Shivering
shuddering,
Wimpering
wavering
But fearlessly strong.

Your soul is a diamond
Unbreakable
Unshakeable
Not knowing what you hope for
was hopeless all along

Because they will never love you
the way that you love them
He will never hurt for you
the way you hurt for him
When your lying, dying
glazed eyes searching in dismay
The ultimate betrayal…
Watch them turn and walk away.

Artist's Description

Being the proud owner of two pit bulls, I’m shocked and sickened by what some heartless cowards will do to an animal who lives and breathes only to please them. I wrote this to express just a little bit of my feelings about the epidemic of dog fighting in this sad country.
