Animal Rights Poetry and Prose By Heidi Coon

Poems of compassion dedicated to the non-human animals who share this planet with us and the people who fight for them.

By Heidi Coon

Possessed of grace
You delight & enchant
with your elegance
supreme sentient
For you, we hymn & marvel
at your superior intelligence
Yet, it is evident
and in direct reference
to our negligence
Our decadence
sets precedence
Our dollars fund your terrorists

Exploited elephant
beast of burden, bated
Your magnificence
Your splendor
… attenuated
Tourist degenerates
… terror
… torment
All for our arrogance
and irreverence
Our all encompassing wretchedness
To hold captive such glory
To enslave your majesty
your excellence
Your nobility stolen by our hideousness
The elephant
