In Silence He Dies
By Anonymous
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.

In Silence He Dies
By Anonymous

His eyes are not blind 
Beauty is seen with physical sight 
But evil is sensed 
He is less blind than I 
He retains senses we have lost 
As a species 
We are the evil ones 
But we cannot see 
And he knows 
When I take him from his home 
Where his life will lead 
And we tell him we are more worthy 
Than he, who knows and feels more 
Than a mere human ever could. 
But he has no voice that we would understand 
No voice, no choice 
The mere humans are his only voice 
And the evil outnumber the kind-eyed 
And in silence, he dies
