CODY IS ILL


My baby boy dog has a warm nose
He's ill
Wishing he can wait until tomorrow
Or the next day to get to a vet
When I finally have money
I have $300 for food, gas, dog stuff
In February
It's not much after I pay
Rent, storage, electricity, water, doctor, car insurance
I'm going to have to learn to go to food banks
Thinking about going to Walla Walla to beg on the streets
Which wouldn't be begging I guess
If I give away poetry and play my guitar
Anything helps is what I write on a sign
I'd go to Walla Walla because Pendleton
Has way more poor people than there
Where two or three colleges are
Where per capita there are many millionaires
The downtown has a STARBUCKS with a brick place
To set up and try
I just have to practice my guitar
And get the nerve up to do it
I get so scared of everything
I hate it
Like now
Afraid to go outside and get my amps
Out of my fifth wheel
Still
Got my guitar out and practiced last night
I play songs I made up
Working on old BEATLES songs tonight
If I can find the music
Thinking of taking guitar lessons
At PENDLETON MUSIC because I use to play so much more
EAGLES songs on piano and guitar
Cody's head is on my pillow
He has my brown fur blanket under him
I am praying he gets well
God please help him with your grace
I cannot stand the look of illness on his precious
Wrinkled face
Going to get out my stethoscope and listen to his heart
He's my baby dog
And a big part of my life
Been here alone for twelve days
Half sick with a bladder infection myself
Thank God I had some old Pyridium and
Two antibiotics has it helped
All I have for Cody is some Tramadol
Which is not going to help an infection at all
Please pray for the old people and the dogs
Who are ill and alone tonight
I ask you to fight the fight
Of survival as I do
Maybe God will bring health to you too
As health is worth more than all the money
Pray for me
I'll pray for you too, honey.
