Laboratories Of Suffering
By Daniel North
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.

Laboratories Of Suffering
By Daniel North

Hearing murmurs of agony 
Visions of burnt, raw skin, blinded by chemicals 
Ripped fur on the metal whilst restrained 
As the cries of pain echo down the halls.

Of the white clinical labs 
In which they try to escape 
Breaking bones and snapping necks 
As another carcass inertly drapes.

You are just all words and no action 
As you keep saying that you are changing your views 
On unneeded testing, but its still going on 
The lies are thin now; the excuses are nothing but old news.

But we all are aware of your game 
We are hot on your tracks though the maze 
As you protect yourself from the lawsuits 
Like what happened with Draize.

You haven't a care for animal welfare 
But focus your interests into money spinning promotions 
Instead of thinking of better alternatives 
Where's your heart, where is your given emotions?

This cruelty must cease 
These morals are stripped into a shamble 
Because if they don't alter their pitiless ways 
Please don't buy anything from Procter & Gamble.
