little souls covered in fur
we see them bark, we see them pur
little souls, they seem hungry
we go to feed them out of pity
little souls might catch a bug
give them vaccines, but never a hug
little souls are 'oh so cute'
but when offered, we all go mute
little souls want to be pet
'don't lick my hands, you're getting them wet!'
little souls, they seem so lost
let's give them names, too bad they were tossed
little souls, they run and roam
questioning why these faces aren't taking them home
