The other day

To my dismay

I saw a terrible sight.

~

He darted to and fro

as the cars went to go

avoiding them with all of his might.

~

I sat and watched

as he pulled and pulled

i would have helped him

if i could.

~

Tears came to my eyes

as I watched him try

to move his fellow mate

knowing I could relate

~

His little tail was twitching

and I found myself wishing

I could turn back time

for that little prairie dog

~

Risking his own little life

to move his dead wife

Out of the road

It was a heavy load

~

For him and for me

because I could truly see

The love and the pain

~

If only more of us

had that loving trust

Even had the pain

~

Than maybe, just maybe

More in life

We would gain

~
