A poem about the rescue of a stray dog, which ended up with a new name of Roger, The picture of Roger was drawn by myself using graphite pencil.

Rogers Rescue

Yelp and a whimper from the stray
As the dog wardens drops his net
Trapped trembling and afraid
The poor dog starting to fret
-
Back of the van he is thrown
Door slamming not so gentle
His destiny not at all known
As the warden drives back to kennel
-
In the dog pen for all to ponder
All around the sound of fear
The stray shivering in the corner
Thinking to himself shouldn’t be here
-
Next day his luck is changing
As young Susie falls in love
Daddy please can I have him
He’s all I’ve ever dreamed of
-
With a new name of Roger
Glad to be part of the crowd
Suzie and her pet growing closer
Roger the luckiest pooch in town
