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.

Fox 2
By Anonymous

A blade of grass 
A distant shout 
Harsh sun on his face 
Then the vision of a snout 
And a sound 
As the hooves beat the ground 
And the nip, the pull, the tear 
His back limb is now elsewhere 
And another tear 
His ear, his abdomen, tail 
His eyesight begins to fail 
And his lights go out 
He can't feel the ground 
Or hear a sound

His head was never found
