They look at me with doggy-sad eyes
Why are we not getting our treats?
How to explain they are ill? They sigh,
wonder why their food is now chicken meat
with rice tossed in, no sign of their jar
opening, which assures racing feet

I can’t wait for restrictions to end,
and the dogs to stop feeling at sea.
They will think I have made amends.
Look forward to us all being friends.
