Drunk Driver Kills Young Lady’s Dog
Melanie cried for hours the day
a drunk driver ran over her dog
a week after she had an abortion.
She loved that dog so much
she told her mother she knew
Ollie was now in heaven barking
as the angels blew their horns.
Her mother softly daubed her tears.
Nothing worse than losing a dog.
