A Happy End

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.

A Happy End
By Lucky Greyhound
Someone's Sofa, USA

The greatest thing I've ever known, 
Someone came and took me home, 
Away from the track; hope I'll never go back! 
Like a nightmare in my memory, my future looked Black, 
Then I was adopted and my life spared. 
I thank God everyday that someone cared; 
'Cause this must be heaven, I'm a winner this time, 
Got a ball, a bone, and a bed all mine. 
And I'm crazy 'bout my family; 
Devoted, you might say. 
Like a shadow beside them. 
You can bet I want to stay! 
And I'm special too, they call me "sweetheart," 
And they hug and kiss me and tell me I'm smart. 
Even dreams are peaceful now; no stress or strife. 
And I run for fun, 'stead of running for my life!
