Bored Kids - Abused Pets

by Barb Hensongispsaca

animal abuse
bored children, nothing to do
innocent suffer
beginnings of bigger things
sadness and heartache follow

pets keep coming back for love
very forgiving
always confused when injured
all just looking for kind words

a pat and a treat
teach kids how to play and laugh
animals respond
love and affection wins licks
attention earns a tail wag
