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.

By C. Sparkie

Do you see the Dog Star
burning brightly in the sky?
If you do, I pity you
because you're doomed to die

Frankincense and myrrh have we
to appease perverted lusts
do not torture man's best friend
take ME if you must

I will be the hostage
to appease your selfish gods
Come! Take me to the darkness
where nobody trods

I shall don a dogsuit
in eve's gloaming light
when Korean bully shows
to kill with all his might
