I wish someone would tell me what it is that I’ve done wrong.
Why do I have to stay chained up and left alone so long?
They seemed so glad to have me when I came here as a pup.
There were so many things we’d do while I was growing up.
But now the Master “hasn’t time” – the Mistress says I shed.
She doesn’t want me in the house – not even to be fed.
The Children never walk me. They always say “Not now.”
I wish that I could please them. Won’t someone tell me how?
All I had, you see, was love. I wish they would explain
Why they said they wanted mine … then left it on a chain.
