The Clipped Ear ~ by Benji

I don’t know why they clipped my ear,

I wasn’t born this way;

It makes me different from the rest,

A badge of my dismay.

Despite the cut I’m still the same,

I haven’t changed within;

The wildness they had hoped to cure

Still lurks beneath my skin.

Though I am happy to be found

And thankful for my home;

I’d rather they have brought me here

With all parts left alone.

  1. Benji, if it is any consolation: I think it was a monstrous thing to do to you; and, you are still very beautiful. You have a mark of distinction. And Effie would adore you if you met! ^-.-^
