Patsy, Lucky, Storm, Canute
He goes by the cutest names!
He gives a fussy warm feeling
To everyone he meets along the way.
A little pet, alright
That’s all he really is
A little guy who can’t even talk
But see, he lends all ears.
He seems to feel what we feel
And offers the best comfort
With him around days can never be lonely
He always keeps us in good company.
Just a little pet, alright
But a big heart he has, all his love to give
A loyal friend who stays true
He cheers you up when you’re blue.
Some people can be cruel
Some can be so unkind
To a vulnerable and trusting
Little pet, little guy.
Time comes when man becomes beast
And beast becomes man
One loses the heart and soul
To him is given.
The Creator of heaven and earth
Gave man stewardship over pets
For all the goodness they offer
Love and respect to them we must proffer.
Pets don’t quarrel, war or argue
Pets don’t lie or speak ill
They don’t rejoice in our failures
They don’t smirk at our foibles.
The heart of men in pets delight
To the abyss of loneliness we are spared
Life is a struggle, accept it
A pet make our burdens lighter to bear.
Can you truly say your heart is golden?
When one too many times a pet lays beaten
Uncared for, unloved, abused, neglected
These damnable acts by Heaven forbidden.
Heed the words of one of our society’s champions,
Mahatma Gandhi would say
‘The greatness of a nation and its moral progress
Can be judged by the way its animals are treated.’
The true mark of our nobility and dignity
Arises and shines forth when
In our hearts we treat our pets
With love, respect, and utmost care til the end.
I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
