    Today is the death day of nobody’s dog
    Nothing will mark it but a note in the log
    I’m faceless and nameless and no tears will fall
    For I know in your world I have no worth at all

    To you, my sweet someone, I’m a friend and a dear
    We ran the wind daily and you held me so near
    But the gate was left open – I chanced a walk on my own
    I’d have cowered in fear if only I’d known

    I know how you cried on the night that I strayed
    I know how you searched, I know how you prayed
    But I went to a pound far far from our home
    Where I crouched in despair in my kennel alone

    I know that you phoned for I heard your dear voice
    And I hoped you would hear me so I barked myself hoarse
    Although I’m a Lab cross with stockings all white
    On their form I’m a Staff cross – the description’s not right

    So they said I’m not here and I sank to my bed
    My kennel cough’s worse and I can’t raise my head
    The rescue came yesterday but they hadn’t a place
    For an un-neutered cross breed with his mucus-streaked face

    If only you’d come to search for me here
    You would have known me at once, you would have sensed I was near
    You would have sorted my ills, you would have carried me home
    And I promise our God no more would I roam

    Now my eyes plead for mercy for my seven days are done
    And I am waiting with dread for the final vet run
    No arms will caress me as they inject me to death
    No words will comfort me as I take my last breath

    When the body man comes, it is fitting I’m found
    In a bin bag in the freezer in the depths of the pound
    Thrown away like the rubbish - no respect and no shame
    Denied even the time to find you again

    My loyalty and devotion they did cruelly betray
    Without microchip or nametag, I am just a dispensable stray
    Once waggy-tailed, once proud, beloved and free
    Oh Dad look with pain at what mankind’s done to me!
