a bloody broken tail tells a tale i can not tell –
oh proud warrior father!
We will try and rescue you!
Trapped in a cage,
(oh the irony of its name:’have a heart’)
with your damaged tail and your loud wail
unaware of salvation.
under you go into a chemical dream land,
to swift kind hands of veterinarians.
You now have a new tale to tell –
with a tipped ear and a docked tail –
You are a survivor.
as am i.
together let us rescue the world.
or at least a night’s sleep.
