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.
