If dogs could talk

I often wonder what the dogs would say
about the events of that tragic day
Would they talk about their fear wondering what the hell was on?
Or like many of nature’s gifts,
did they know it was on its way?

While Bundy the dog lies in the sun and dreams
Does he have visions of sitting in a boat on a Smokey lake?
But I hope he is chasing rabbits and birds down at the stream.

I believe they want to talk
Whether in the form or a bark or a yelp
Like us they are still traumatised from NYE and need your help
All they want is a hug, a pat, to be thrown a bone,
and to tell you that you will never be alone.
