Dog eat dog by Grant Harbison

Amidst the jeers and cheers I hear your cries of pain
Why must I do this time and again?
Forgive me brother I had no choice
I’m bound to obedience and my master’s voice
Although it’s them that should be taking the blame
I still hang my canine head in shame
This is what I go through night after night
For a bowl of food I’m forced to fight
Was it the puppy love that made me blind?
For I never would have imagined man to be unkind
Lay still my friend
Rest your head
Moments from now you will be free and dead
My life will continue in fear and dread
But just for now I’ll be glad to be fed
