The Night Of The Freezing

The Night Of The Freezing

The Night Of The Freezing – January 6, 2014 – The Arctic Vortex hits Canada and the USA and dogs chained outside suffer terribly. These few words are for them – so in death – they know they are never forgotten:


“Twas the night of the freezing

When all through the land

Doggies lay dying

With no helping hand.


The owners sat snug and warm in their homes

While judges complained about old legal tomes

The puppies were crying – their little pink pads

Turned purple with frostbite – these poor little lads.


Their mothers sat helpless – chained to the bone

While whimpers turned silent – now cold as a stone

Some humans cried foul – these deaths must all stop

But others just shrugged and said “go call a cop”.

By morning the snow coats a silent sweet hound

Where life had once sparkled – no longer a sound

And humans now rise and stretch in the dark

On a day when we’re missing another sweet bark!


Rosemary Wright – Canada – witness to this travesty . . .

And still the laws do not change – animals have no rights and we allow

Cruelty that knows no bounds – yet another day – ashamed to be human!
