Nitro and the fireworks

bang, bang
His anxiety spikes
He is so nervous of the fireworks
He gets such a fright
As they bang and crack
his body shakes
its like he’s having a heart attack!
I try to soothe him
I rub his soft fur
“Its ok, boy” I say
“Dont worry, I’m here”
He responds with a lick
As he gives me his paw
My faithful loyal companion
Forevermore!
