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.
C is for the cages where we rot our lives away;
I is for the indignity we suffer every day;
R is for the ring where we perform for human glee;
C is for the cruelty the audience doesn't see;
U is for the ugliness behind the flash and glitter;
S is for our slavery, so brutal and so bitter.
