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.
For Those of Little Dust
By Khy'em Amri
Let it then be reiterated for those "of little dust".
I give you LIFE-FLOW Scripture 'cause HE says I must.
Here you are, fond of life – so why cause another to kill?
Is that any way to get your "meat", which means to get your fill?
Shall I kill and eat thee, so you may have quicker recompense?
You who eat many animals in so-called Spiced Decadence~!
Nay, I shall let the beasts devour thee – for surely ye shall be prey,
who's harmed the least of these creatures shall be one in the Day!
Don't inflict pain on others since you don't want if for yourself!
Take this Book of Life and read it from the Internal Book-Shelf!!!
I tell you, "I encourage you," and with these words of life:
I say: "Please abstain from killing," so you may end all strife!
