Jenny MoxhamA Voice For the Animals

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 Voice For the Animals
By Jenny Moxham

To the tune of 'The Times They Are A'Changing' by Bob Dylan

We're fighting to set all the animals free,
To release them from bondage and man's tyranny
And we'll never give up 'til each one of them's free
For their pain is our pain and it's hurting;
And the truth must be told
By the fearless and bold
For the times they are a'changing.

There's no-one to save them except you and me,
And we'll never give up on them 'til they are free.
If it takes us a lifetime that's how it must be,
And truth will win out in the end;
For justice and right
Surely overcome might
And the times they are a'changing.

And when you're downhearted and filled with despair
Don't give up the fight for you've comrades out there,
And together we'll banish oppression and fear,
And the world will be happy and free;
And our hearts will be filled
For no more will be killed
Oh, the times they are a'changing.

So dare to have courage and dare to be strong,
And dare to tell others that murder is wrong,
And give all that you have and give all that you can,
And success will be ours in the dawning;
And sorrow and pain
Will never more reign
For the times they are a'changing.

Each day of your lifetime where 'ere you may be,
Be a voice for the animals 'til they are free.
Enlighten the ignorant, make the blind see,
And this slavery surely will end;
And with banners unfurled
Let us shout to the world,
Oh, the times they are a'changing.
