Manís Best Friend
By Kelly Overton
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.

Manís Best Friend

Dog on a chain
Spring

Dog on a chain
Spring

Dog on a chain
Wet
Hot
Cold
Chain around neck always
Wet, hot, cold
Thirsty, hungry
Always a chain
