Compassion
by Donna Anderson - donna1994@delphi.com

Submitted by Susan Roghair EnglandGal@aol.com 4 Jul 2001

The cry of a cow being slaughtered
The whimper of a hunted deer
A squeal of a pig being branded
And the torture a veal calf will feel

The fear in a lab animal's eyes
The boredom of animals in zoos
An animal in slavery for entertainment
The fright of animals on fur farms, too.

Though they do not speak our language
Or understand our ways
Animals do have rights in this world
They, too, know how to love, weep, and play.

We believe humans are intelligent
The smartest of all species
Then why is it we use our friends
And treat them as assembly line pieces?
