Dog

Album art by J. White - Post Pilgrim Art Gallery.

How do you know I don’t have a soul?
You can’t look me in the eye and tell me no
When a soul is a soul is a soul


I’ve been forced down ever since I was just small
Tied in the hall or chained out of doors
When a soul is a soul is a soul


While you claim the bed lifted up off the floor
How do you know I’m not as good as you are?
When a soul is a soul is a soul


You have habits that define your kind
But deny me mine most of the time
And a soul is a soul is a soul


You say that I need to be trained
When I’m only doing what nature demands
And a soul is a soul is a soul


Leave me to sit by the kitchen door
Just to watch it rain and listen to it pour
A soul is a soul is a soul


Rain down the water that created us both
My old man’s soul in this old dog’s coat
A soul is soul is a soul
