It sees through windows car was moving forth,
past neighborhood the old mutt grew up in.
Succinct was life that was transferred thenceforth,
It mused how irascible he had been.

Since he was young while it was still a pup,
They overcame the obstacles of life.
How funny when the human kids grew up.
They trusted no one, seeing only strife.

It saw the anxious man wander around.
There's bills to pay with over-drafted cards.
The man's worries condensed to a frown.
Not knowing how to live a life so marred.

The squealing braking shakes it wide awake,
"At least, Old Mutt can trade a dinner steak!"

Dogs are humans' most loyal companion--but unfortunately some people don't deserve the loyalty
