A Puppy's Promise

I'm a black, lonely puppy

with nobody to call my own

I was taken to the shelter

because I was no longer a friend

but I promise when I get out

I'll no longer pee on the floor

or eat your old shoe

I promise, I promise

to obey you

They said black wasn't in fashion

They said that black was too bad

but I am a good dog

and promise to do no wrong

Someone came up to me

to give me a pat

They said I was no longer worthy

and that I will get gased

I guessed it was true

but I promised and promised

to be true to you!

Early in the morning

they took me to a room

I was to lie down

and to obey

while they gased me

I floated away

I promise, I promise

to be always so true

to be your best friend

and not eat your shoes

to love you forever

and not get tough

for I am a dog

and will never give up

The man that I saw

was so gentle and sweet

and I promised those words

to him and to me
