I Know Why
Poetry by Diana Moreton

I know why caged bird sings
Imprisoned with broken wings

I know why a piglet cries
As Mother prematurely dies

I know why veal calves moan
Wrenched from Mama, all alone

I know why chimpanzees scream
Souls laid waste of jungle dream

Yes, I know why a baby lamb ba's
Longing for their long lost Ma's

Death be nimble, death be quick
Arsenic plates, poison chopsticks

I know why dairy cows low
Spent of milk, to butcher go

Humans mean, people cruel
Love to make sweet animals pule
