House Rules (Poem)

My dogs were there in sickness,

My dogs were there in heartbreak,

I’ll always be thankful my dogs were there in sickness,

I’ll always be thankful my dogs were there in heartbreak,

Life would’ve been much harder without my dogs in heartbreak and sickness.

 

Yet my dogs don’t like strangers in our home,

Thus, the foster agency made us choose between our dogs and foster child,

In the end, we chose to keep our dogs in our home,

In the end, we gave up on the foster child,

After all, my husband and I are the only ones who can give rules in our home.

 

So this is what I say “our home, our rules,”

We choose who is allowed in our home,

Strangers aren’t allowed to come in and make rules,

After all, I despised being told what I could and couldn’t do in my parents home,

It was a relief to finally have my own rules.
