If Animals Spoke our Language
 By Butterflies Katz

Animals speak to us in their own way,
but if they spoke with words, what would they say?
One thing I declare, without ANY doubt:
All animals in cages would say 'Let me Out!'

'Watch my eyes follow your every motion'
A dog would say, 'my life speaks of devotion'.
A horse would say, 'A fire burns deep within me
that yearns to run through the countryside, free!'

'You can be soft and cuddly, like I am'
illustrates an adorable little lamb.
'Soar with your thoughts like I soar through the sky,'
advises a wood pigeon gliding by.

A bird might add, 'Our grand and spacious sky
was meant as a safe place for us to fly.
'Birds are killed by cars that also pollute the air,
This planet was intended for us to share.'

'Help, my mother's been shot' a fawn would cry,
who woefully witnessed her mother die.
She'd flee in fear to her cousins and brother,
'The scariest beast of all killed my mother.'

'Your blindness to bovines is a real oddity,
for you see us as a mere commodity.
Hard to believe the exploitation we've seen,
being conscious beings seen as a machine.'

'Some scientists are really quite confused
seeking answers by primates being abused.
I, with eyes that greatly resemble yours,
see madness in some things that man explores.'

'I can't breathe or move; I'm living in hell!'
cries a chicken from her crowded prison cell.
"Humans inflict such excruciating pain',
With a hook in his mouth, a fish would explain.

One way we can improve the human race
is to respect those of a different face.
We need to listen in a whole new way
to what animals are trying to say.
