Poem - my dog died

Updated on October 7, 2011

my wife left me,

whatever, I thought

the apartment is small

now I don't have to stand in the corner

and be berated.

I lived a delicious life for a while,

then my dog Mursheen-Durkin died,

because of food.

how ironic, I thought,

in between sobs,

she liked to sit in my old place in the corner,

looking there I felt for holes in my hands,

dragging myself around on camel knees,

my back bent with kennedy, king, lennon,

all the good are dead.

an evil moron is a president,

such a serious combination,

I could have survived either one,

so I left america.

taking her ashes with me ...back to Beirut,

I buried her beside my dear daughters dead

with what was left of my heart...

.

      My dog died today, he was 16. My grandmother picked him out of the litter because he was the reject puppy, a crooked tail and smaller than the others, but he came a long way. He was there though my grandmothers battel with cancer then later death and my parents devoice. He was a great dog, watching over me as i grew. I'ma miss my samuel

      Well Dave, you are fairly typical faceless fascist person hiding behind your anonymity... anyone who does not realise that the current president bush is a moron is obviously a moron also...

      have a nice day.. ..Drax..

      Kaitlyn, yes it is sad but depending upon your age you may not be ready for this yet... I see you are commenting and are not registered and I wonder is this a good thing...

      We lost our black Lab,Knight, on 12th Oct,07.

      The grief of such a loss can be understood by a pet lover only.
