Get Rid Of The Advertisements

just over there beyond the hill
 
sketch by
walt larsen
















Please look
into my
frightened
eyes
'n try
to cry,
as one might
see me
passing
by
your house
so many
times
like that I
might have
somewhere
over there
to go,
but no
there's
nowhere
for me
with no collar
or trust,
and yes
I guess
that I'm
just a
flea bitten
lost dog
without
a home
as I roam
the neighborhood
far and wide
to seek
'n find
some food
from garbage
cans,
or tiny bits
of meat
for cats
that also
are about
looking for
a handout.

Someone
was very
cruel
to me,
so you see
I can't trust
anyone
it seems
within those
demented
doggy
dreams
at night
as the cold
wind
blows~~~~
clear through
my shaggy
coat of hair
as some
people stare
but seem
to never care
what happens
to a
simple
animal
like me.

I was loved
and cared for
by an old man
just yesterday,
or was it
a month ago
I really
do not know,
for he finally
up and died
one day
and someone
bought the
house
and kicked
me out
within the cold
cruel world
to search
for love
and kindness too,
'n wouldn't
you
wonder why
that I
am lonesome
too
and don't
know what
to do
but to
pass
your house
on worn
out paws
as I pause
to rest
my tired
bones
before to
die
just over
there
beyond
the hill?

All kinds
of dogs
big and small
are about
just over
there
beyond the
hill,
and won't
someone
fill
our needs
somehow
'n soon?
