Coming to Town
By Daniel North
Submitted by the author - 20 Oct 2005

When will they all realise
That animals have feelings too?
Instead of exploiting them
With degrading acts
That the ring master
Forces them to do.

Humiliating their intelligence
By making them dance or jump through a hoop
As the baiting crowd applauds
That masks their inner torment
And the cheers that blank out
The lonely heads that sadly droop.

Neglecting their authority
Just in the name to entertain
But we never see the full picture
Like what’s behind the curtain;
The thrashing of blood soaked bodies
Or the verbal abuse that deepens pain.

We need to stop this dire cruelty
That is poisoning this world all around
So that animals can be at harmony at last
By driving these corrupted circuses
Of sheer heartlessness
Right out of town.
