A New Beginning
By Mary T. Hoffman
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 New Beginning
By Mary T. Hoffman

The Bible says that no one knows 
the hour of His return. 
Yet, truth to tell, 
this world’s a hell 
for all His creatures 
trapped herein.

Too many animals suffer pain 
inflicted for demonic gain. 
This travesty must end. 
The Lord is sure to send 
His Righteousness to reign.

The lion and the lamb 
forever will be friends. 
No more will grubby human kind (?) 
twist His Word (excuse to find) 
to mutilate, harass, and bind.

So, perk up, friend; 
it’s bound to end. 
The Lord will have His Day 
when evil’s swept away. 
For this I always pray.
