Memoriam

 

Pippin died last night

A perpetual motion puppy
crushed
by a machine
An innocent floppy eared mutt
lost to this earth

Pippin died last night

His tail wagging in a last goodbye
His soulful eyes dazed
His fragile body crushed

Pippin died last night

To be reborn perhaps
To bring joy and happiness
to a more deserving soul

Pippin died last night and his world
cried
Tears shed for the happiness he brought
and the memories he left

Pippin died last night.
