Puppy Love

He gently filled the tub with milk
And brought the injured puppy close
To let it drink, to let it heal.
The puppy twitched its velvet nose.

He gently took it by the scruff
And plunged its head into the milk
To help it drink, to help it heal.
The puppy twitched its body silk.

He gently held its legs and tail
And smashed its head into the stone
To make it drink, to make it heal.
The puppy twitched its final moan.
