~I won two hamsters in a pool game in a bar~took them home to my 5 year old son~told him keep these guys in food & water~if you don’t they’ll die~he took them in their shoe-box house into his room~a couple of weeks later I looked in~they were tits up~called out to him~lecture time~whoa dad! you were right~

~Tits Up~

~1000 Days~
~Day 990~
~Tits Up~


~dogs scratching on the window~
~cats kneading more than they give~
~goldfish floating gasp of bowl~
~ferrets and hamsters desperate~
~to escape or simply die~
~of their own captured condition~
~humans kept as pets empirical~
~decisions made which one~
~to keep which to throw away~
~I’ve seen folks do that with their children~
~intervened a few times~
~ended up with my ass in a sling~
~I can’t ignore such things though~
~dotting the eye of a predator~
~is very nearly as satisfying~
~as putting the damned thing in the ground~
