Happy Motherís Day?
By Mary T. Hoffman
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.

Happy Motherís Day?
By Mary T. Hoffman

Happy Motherís Day, you say?
Not if youíre a sow or cow
Crammed and jammed,
Insane with pain
Day after day,
Night after night Ė
Unending fright
From birth to death,
Hidden away; how can we say
ďHappyĒ Motherís Day?
