A Misplaced Loyalty

Into the street the dog ran on
Heedless of the warning calls
Running through the silent morn
The dog failed to hear the horn
As he chased his favorite ball
He took his final breath that dawn

A sight of horror the boy could not
Stand to watch it through the end
The dog he knew failed in his goal
The ball now resting by a pole
Away away around the bend
The car drove on and did not stop

The boy was left alone to ponder
Why the dog would take the chance
And heed no warning nor a call
For he was loyal to his ball
But now he's off with death to dance
And leave us all alone to wonder
