It Hurts

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.

It Hurts
By Bernie Jones

Surely they understand

as I squeal 
as I squeak 
as I move 
as I shove 
as I struggle 
as I twist 
as I turn 
as I scream 
as I push 
as I plead 
as I give up 
as I bleed

...that it hurts
