‘A Refugee’s Lament,’ Letter to the Editor from Frances Pulle

Β 
A REFUGEE’S LAMENT 🐢

I’d kill to be a dog in the USA. . .πŸ”«
Wear Gucci, Calvin Klein,
a rhinestone collar lovingly
engraved with my moniker, “Valentine”. πŸ’–

I’d eat organic, bed down by the fire
on a quilt (oriental beneath). . . πŸ”₯
Take supplements (daily), Dentastix chews
(for healthy gums ‘n’ teeth).

I’d patronize the “Pampered Pup”
not infrequently because
“cruelty-free, PETA approved alternatives” πŸ‘
are kind to eyes and paws.

Should I reap the consequences of disease,
suffer indignities left and right. . .
I’d be soothed, sedated, overdosed πŸ’‰
(if indicated),
sent gently into that good night. πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€

I dream I’m a dog in the USA, πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
an adoptee rescued from the city pound. . .🐺
I think this as I run ‘n’ hide, play dead day after day. . .
I’m already half-human and half-hound.
