I Don't Know
By Bonnie Sharpless
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.

I Don't Know
By Bonnie Sharpless

I donít know how their minds must work
Or how their hearts can bear it:
To kill a free and gentle soul
remove its skin
and wear it.
