When Mercy Feels Like Murder

When Mercy Feels Like Murder


I started as an owner

But now I’m his friend


My dog is dying

Damn, damn this sounds

Like a bad country song.


I am wishing

For his peaceful end

In our home


Instead of sleeping


In a cold vet office


Paying the bill

For a mercy kill.
