Lonely Dog

Lonely Dog

written by: Jake Cosmos Aller



A lonely dog
Goes out into the courtyard
Waiting for his master
To return home

Alas false alarm
His master will not return
As he has died.

Of the super plague
That killed most people.

The dogs and cats
And other animals
Eventually left
To fend for themselves.

But they missed
Their human friends.
