Dogs

 

Brief: Write the libretto for an opera.

Notes: This was meant for the day 8 prompt, but after trying to adapt two different episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and realizing it was taking more time than I can give, I posted two out-of-order, scrapped everything, and went back to this today.

Excerpt:

Knowing death is fated

 

ALL:                            Behind steel bars.

 

PIPER:                        But we dream

Of love and cuddles

And fur-ever families…
