America the Beautiful?
by Donna Anderson - [email protected] 

With banners flying high
proud to be alive
Americans live their lives
without batting an eye
But locked tightly in their cages
are our animals of nature
Crying desperately in pain
as the vivisectionist jots statistics on his paper
Why must we show cruelty
to every living thing
We should be teaching our children to be peaceful
instead of how to sting
The very things that brought us life
you know as well as I
Are the animals we now torture
to put a dollar in the American pie!
