only a pet

Only a Pet. 
It was the day of 9/11, distressed I thought
the world was coming to an end and feared 
what USA would do in response?

I took my beloved dog Bambi out for a walk,
at a big parking lot I let her off the lead, she 
liked being rid of me for a little while. 

There was a hole in the fence were trains
passed, jumped through it although she was 
quite elderly, a train came…no more dog. 
 
Put her in a black bin liner, so much blood 
and she looked so small. Drove to where she
was born dug a hole and the heavens cried.
