About This Blog

This blog was originally started as a thread on the forum pages of an animal rescue site. Now it's here!

The articles you find in here are purely for entertainment (yours and mine) and (with one or two exceptions) are all tongue-in-cheek chronicles of the World (my bit, anyway) as I see it.
No disrespect is intended towards anyone unless I make a mistake and make it too obvious.

I hope you enjoy my offerings. Feedback and comments of any kind are welcome.

Soul Salvation

Hardship made you lose all trust,
and sorrow turned your heart to frost.
Loneliness through the cold hard days,
memories of a family long ago lost.
Fear and anger fill your soul,
as alone you sit inside a cage.
No salvation in sight,
just cold and bitter rage.
Day after day,
night after night.
Engulfed in sadness,
with no way to fight.


Come said a voice
right by your ear,
walk with me,
and have no fear.
I'll show you life,
as it ought be.
I'll show you love,
just wait, you'll see.
I will teach,
but I too will learn.
For your trust and love,
I hope to earn.
Stay with me,
until the end.
Be my companion,
my confidant and friend.

  and many years from now

I will ease your crossing,
and hold you as you sleep.
And as I wish a fond farewell,
I shall promise not to weep.
But now,
I think it's that time of day!
Get your ball,
and let's go play!
