From the Wreckage
Natural disasters have been a constant blight on mankind
Never knowing when things will go terrible wrong
We have only the animals to give us a hint
When into chaos we are about to be sent.
Chester was an odd dog who always seemed to be about,
The neighborhood knew he had no home
So they all took it upon themselves to feed him
It was the perfect situation for a dog on his own.
Then one day people were annoyed to hear his barking
He went just outside their doors
And he barked until he saw them look through the window
At first each person looked like a volcano about to blow.
Then they saw the smoke from not too far away
This strange dog who had seemed no more than a stray
Was giving all of the people within this small community
Warning to get out, it was an unexpected opportunity.
Though a fire rampaged through much of the area
Not a person who lived within that neighborhood was lost
Because Chester had made sure they all left before it was too late.
From then on he belonged to them all without any debate.
