A plea.


I Am Not A Monster


It was a bright sunny day

A perfect day for chasing rabbits-

This big adorable lug- gotta get um-

Go Cujo- Go.


Heard a lot of barking-

Maybe he got one of those rascals-

It’s about time.



Strange thing-

Nobody seemed to have any for him.

So time went by.


It hurt-

That bite on the face-

There’s no understanding it.


This big adorable lug-

That big- yet invisible.

Day after day-

This is getting worse-

And nobody sees.

Really- nobody cares.


A child cares-

They often do-

And get ignored.


Worse and worse-

Pain and torment-

Left to maddening devices.


Nobody cares.

No vet visit-

No chance.


Mother nature is a bitch.


It hurts- and hurts- and hurts…

No more thirst for rabbits-

Just unquenchable thirst-

Increasing pain-

Crushing torment.


He has to stop it-

But it is everywhere now-

It is everyone now…

And he has to stop it.


Please- whatever you do-

Only hate indifference.


John H. Bidwell

EXCELLENT metaphor, John.
Reviewed by Victoria's Poetry & Voices of Muse 12/10/2009
Some things so largely small are incredibly grand
And some things so seemingly large are greatly small
...and so we have judgments
of perceived individuals standing
in their silence whom would not walk in the same stones
that they cast...
Heart wrenching actually...callous...
Diversity is an amazing thing...

how sad, yet it could be taken in many ways, just how each one of us perceives what we read, but i did enjoy reading it, so well done

A big dog with rabies. Poor fella. I being an animal person (cats&dogs) love the way you wrote your verse. It explained the goings on as easy as possible. Sorry for the Dog. But happy for the outstanding writing.
