Animal Shelter People

What is it with some

Animal shelter

People?

 

They seem so abrupt,

In a hurry and

Defensive,

 

On top of everything

They expect in

applications.

 

Are these the best

Society has to

Offer

 

To be caring for

Strays, and the

Abused?

 

They are rude if

You don’t hurry

Up

 

And do things

Their

Way.

 

Maybe, they are

War weary and

Have

 

Developed a hatred

Of the very

Species

 

That could offer

Safety and succour —

Homo sapiens.

 

Yes, the species that

Inflicted the damage

In

 

The first place. Maybe

Animal shelter

people

 

Are shell-shocked and

Strike at the ones who

Could

 

Help — maybe they are

The medics of the

Animal

 

Kingdom suspicious

Of the motives of

Those

 

Waving the white flag.

Maybe, they have

Been

 

At it too long and

Have seen too

Much

 

And suffer from post-

Traumatic doggie

Shock

 

Syndrome. I’ve been yelled

At by dog shelter

People

 

For not standing attention

And saluting –

And

 

All I wanted to do

Was rescue a

Dog.

 

I tried to tell them,

I’m not the bad

Guy,

 

Who did the damage,

But I’m so confused;

Maybe

 

It’s my past catching

up and it’s karma

again.

 

We all have some

Things in our

Past….

 

I’m so sorry; all

I wanted to do was

Adopt

 

A lonely dog. Maybe

They are saying,

“Wait,

 

Just a minute, Bub.

We know human

Nature.”

 

 

So, I yield and so

Do, you,

Too.
