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.
