A Tribute To All The Research Horses In Laboratories
From Teresa Greatorex - firstname.lastname@example.org
For only so long as you produce for me, fulfill my desires, serve my ambitions, fund my lifestyle, and win my favor, I will provide for you.
Understand this, Foolish Horse, I am from the lineage of Cain. I have no concern for your needs. If I can murder my own brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, wives, husbands and children, what makes you think that I would have any regard for you?
Oh, Foolish Horse, you are but a tool for me, and nothing more. I do not acknowledge your feelings, your goodness, or your spirit. You are but a disposable thing for me to use. Know this, I will throw you away on a whim, and never think twice about it, for I have also murdered my conscience.
I will take all you are willing to give and still ask for more. When you are old or blind, lame or diseased, then will I release you to the slaughterhouse. Your years of service mean nothing to me.
Take care, Foolish Horse not to anger me in any way for I will beat you, or withhold your feed and water. When you are injured, I will ignore your wounds.
I control your life, you do as I say or you shall suffer for it. I can conceive a hundred ways to cause you pain, not only physically, but also emotionally. I can raise your stress levels to the point of insanity if I so choose.
You are at my mercy, never forget that.
I have nothing to fear from the law, as your well being is of very little concern to anyone. The few who do care, can do little to help you. They express their disgust at my kind, but do nothing to change your circumstances. I shall remain victorious, and continue my cruel research, so long as they are unwilling to step forth to assist you.
There is no help for you, Foolish Horse, as humans are content in their lifestyles, you would be an interruption to them. They are willing to pay lip service to your plight, and nothing more. You mustn't forget the almighty dollar, that is a major contributor to your misery, and lastly indifference. These are the ingredients that allow your plight to continue.
Our association started the day I left Eden, and will continue for all time.
Remember, I wear many hats, and I can be any man or woman, I can be rich or poor, I can be well educated and hold a position of power, or I can be ignorant and lowly.
You see, Foolish Horse, it is not who I am, but rather what I am, and so long as abuse is tolerated by anyone, then you shall suffer, and I shall succeed.
**Please remember these horses in your prayers, along with all the creatures of God who live in laboratories, for you are all they have.
