In the Lamper's Beam
By Judi Hewitt
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.

No Time To Run - no time to scream

You cannot hide from the lamper's beam

No time to think - no last reprieve

There isnít even time to grieve

The rifle bullet rips your jaw

Your mangled face just blood and gore

You never saw your killer's face

He does not see your charm and grace

His bloodlust has him in a bind

No kindly thoughts in his dark mind

The shooter cares not for your life

He only thinks of gun and knife

But whoís to say what lies in store

For the hunter... when heís at Godís door

fox killed 

This is a picture of a (once) beautiful vixen. We found her murdered on a country lane near our home. She had been shot through the head by a merciless gamekeeper using a high powered rifle without permission. The police let him get away with it - but he will have to answer one day!
