A Gnawing Shame

Our administration left the dogs behind, persons
with more honor than they. Bomb-sniffing
hero-dogs who defended the lives of many
of our service people - just abandoned there---
with a regime known to curse dogs religiously. 
We've lost more
than the 13 by the careless ill-advised act of
our feckless leaders. I haven't told Murph
yet because I know she'll want to gnaw
a glute.
