Man's Best Friend MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

   I am sixteen

And my best friend has betrayed me

The dog I cannot live without

Doesn't sleep in my room

Anymore

How come my room is

Always so empty

What if I wake

Before morning

And my dog's in the bedroom

Under my sister's bed.



I have to learn how to change

In time for the next night

My room is too big for me

Suppose I give him more time

His tail will wag merrily

And finally

Learn the truth about me

There is so much I want to do

And too little

Time to share with him

And the dog's in the bedroom

Under my sister's bed.



I didn't stop to think

About his side of it

I should have stayed his best friend

My throws are better than hers

Why do I have to be

The one

Playing sports

I won't do anything tomorrow

Will I be home long enough

To be with him

And my dog's in the bedroom

Under my sister's bed.
