Condemned to Death?
By Kenneth Cassar
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.

Condemned to Death?
By Kenneth Cassar

I hear the funeral bells ringing
It's the death of Mother Earth
A mother who loved us dearly
But we treated her like dirt

She gave us all her self
Her land, her sea, her sky
But we decided to murder her
Without a reason why

We've killed her living creatures
Polluted her wide seas
We did not care for nature
We filled her with disease

Some day will come in future
We'll end killing ourselves
Cause death of Earth means death of us
For us the funeral bells!
