I adopted your pet today...
The one you left at the pound,
The one you had for nine years
and no longer wanted around.

I adopted your pet today...
Do you know that he’s lost weight?
Do you know that he’s scared and confused
and has lost all faith?

I adopted your pet today...
He had fleas and a cold,
but don’t you worry none -
You’ve unburdened your load.

I adopted your pet today...
Were you having a baby or moving away?
Did you suddenly develop allergies or was
there no reason he couldn’t stay?

I adopted your pet today...
He doesn’t play or eat much.
He’s very depressed now
but will learn again to trust.

I adopted your pet today...
And here he will stay.
He’s found his furever home
and a warm bed on which to lay.

I adopted your pet today...
I will give him all that he could need -
Patience, love, security, understanding.
Hopefully he forgets your selfish deed!
