I was always happy.
Being with you was always a dream come true every day
Daily I’d wait for you to return home
You’d bring home dinner
I’d get you the paper
Then we’d watch TV while I lay on your lap
You’d tell me about your stressful days at work
your strong arms around my shoulder
And hands stroking my hair
And whenever we get the chance, we’d touch our noses together
Then you start hanging out with the redhead
See you texting her all the time
I know when you’re away you would be with her
I can smell her on you
And you’ll come back too tired
Now you barely even notice me around
call me a clingy bitch but how could you?
Is she as cute as I? Is she as loving as I?
What’s worst is when you brought her home
I couldn’t believe it, she looks so thin like a hairless monkey
She puts on so much make up on her flat face
And you still choose her over me?
Oh sure just because she’s your type and wears fancy clothes
All I have is this collar, that you gave me
I mean, I’ve always been good to you
I bake brownies at the porch, the way you told me to
I chase away intruders
like that man who always litters your front door with paper
And cats! I know you don’t like cats, I hate cats.
Her? She’s just going to be wasting your money, and time
Eww! What are you doing to her mouth?
You’re supposed to lick, not suck!
I’ll never understand you people
But you’ve never understood me either
Ugh I am not staying around anymore
where’s my bone? I need to chew something
I am not happy!
