DaVinci's Day
By Anonymous
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.

DaVinci's Day
By Anonymous

Da Vinci predicted 
That one day man would live 
In a world where the killing 
Of the other beings 
Would be treated like the killing 
Of a human man

I pick up where he left off

One day 
We shall stare in the mirror 
And not see bodies made of murder 
One day we shall see an animal die 
At the end of life and no sooner

One day 
No animal will be kept in a cage 
Except for the ones who feel it's their right 
To torture, tease, rape and take life

One day 
A tree will stand for centuries 
In peace 
Helping the animals breathe 
And enjoying the company 
Of the squirrels in it's boughs 
And the lovers in its shade

One day 
To slay, to murder, to mistreat, to trap, to rape, to test,
to use, abuse, to hold, to snap, to hold back 
Will be wrong 
Wrong! 
Oh God bring on 
DaVinci's Day
