After they’ve been shot at, terrorized
by the noise of bombs, burned,
and as minesniffers blown apart…
sent to harm by
would be Pentagon Bonapartes
the US military is now abandoning
these dogs in war zones..
these loyal friends are left
behind… from their
loved ones set apart*
Countless hundreds of thousands
of animals have been abandoned
as soldiers are sent from bases
in the US in which they were stationed
to warzones around the world.
