LOVING LIBERTY
Her loves her,
Liberty.
He really loves her.
She's old,
Liberty.
Really old.
But something
went wrong with
Liberty's back right leg.
To save the hind leg,
they had to cut off
two toes.
This old dog Liberty
had to learn new tricks.

Now she limps,
Liberty,
mostly around the house
arranged carefully
just for her. . .
by the man who loves her.

Loves Liberty
more than anything.
Even though she limps
on her last legs.
