Watch the sullen dogs
wait quietly under the table,
eyes affixed on the feast so lavishly laid out.
See how they raise their heads ever so slightly
as you take a bite from your silver spoons.
Can you hear their hearts beat with each wagging tail
as they catch a sliver
and lick the
and lick the f a l l i n g morsel...
And while you have had one more meal,
they just had one more day...
