An Animal Rights Poem from All-Creatures.org

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.

A Poem

An overlooked pain, is the despair of the animal lover

Barraged daily by blatant displays of torture
Supermarket check-outs stained with the rancid blood of their feathered and
hoofed friends
restaurant plates full of their dismembered arms, legs, organs

an overlooked pain ... is the despair of the animal lover

a man strapping his dog with a leash in the park
a manager "removing" a family of ducks from the lake
a popular movie ... shows a little dog tossed through a window like a football
and the audience laughs

The feeling of alienation is painful
each cruelty felt as a personal blow

This is a word of recognition
for the pain suffered
by people who love animals.
