A poem about a lost puppy being found and renamed Spike in its new home

Spikes home

Dog running wild in the clover
Catcher doing his best to strike
The pooch he dives for cover
The net came down on spike

Back to the pound they head
With Life an uncertainty
The driver he just sped
The kennel his penalty

On view for everyone to see
That young pup he just cries
Begging yearning to be free
Spike with hound dog eyes

Days passing one by one
No one wants a pooch like him
Until one early morn
A wanting child named Tim

He’s now happy and warm
Wanting for nothing at all
He’s at last at home
Loved by one and all
