An Animal Rights Poem from

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.




Carols by Candlelight
By Jenny Moxham

Carols by Candlelight,
Christmas Eve,
Voices uplifted in song,
Singing of love and peace on Earth,
Earnest, impassioned and strong.
Carols by Candlelight,
Leaves me unmoved,
Knowing those singing of peace,
Will tomorrow, most likely, be equally earnestly
Carving up turkeys and geese.
