Human
By Starlight

I feel so sick and hungry and cold
And my pain is increasing as I grow old
Why does my plea for help fall on deaf ears
Why doesn't anyone wash away my fears

I limp because of a broken leg and hip
Imagined if that happened to you
Then it would matter, wouldn't it
Then, Human, what would you do

I cry because my family
Was slaughtered right in front of me
Cries for help and then lifeless eyes
That's what happened when my beloved mother died

And my sister the last thing she did
Was turn to me with blood tears on her eyes
Why do you do this to us
Why do you ignore our cries

Before I escaped I lived in a cage
So small that I could smell my neighbor's breath
I could feel him trembling with fear
And this only made me more upset

I still remember my family screaming with pain
This is something you can never forget again
But there you are, Human, wearing fur because it's in fashion
Oh Human, how can you show such little compassion
