Dear M.O.A.F.M.

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.

Dear M.O.A.F.M.
By Anonymous

Iím sorry to disturb you
To waste your precious time
But Iím trying hard to trace
A certain relative of mine

Iíve searched for him all over
The fields, the woods, the shore
Iím missing him so much
I just canít take it anymore

He was only very little
He went off out to play
And I havenít seen him since
No contact to this day

And I know just what youíre thinking
But he wouldnít run away
Heís a good lil boy, my Eshep
And I wont hear what you say

Iím worried that ďtheyíveĒ got him
You know, ďthemď, they talk about
They usually take them by the mass
But theyíve been known to shoot one down

But, yeah, the reason that Iím writing
Its just that Iíve been told
That you sometimes take us in
When we get a bit too old

I was just thinking maybe
There might have been a mistake
And ďtheyĒ brought in my poor Eshep
When he was just playing by the lake

Iím hoping youíll get back to me
I donít know what else to do
Iíd given it all up already
When I thought of trying you

Oh please have news with you!

Eshepís Mother, Phees Wee

Dear Phees Wee weíre sorry
Thereís been no error here
Your son was brought here a week okay
Like a million sheep this year

It was decided he was grown enough
To be sent away to us
And honestly, Iím sorry
But please donít make a fuss

Your son was nothing special
A little manky in the flesh
He wonít be sent to the market
So Iíll send you on the mess

Youíll be able to bury him
Or whatever it is you do
And youíre right Iím very busy
I donít expect a reply from you

M.O.A.F.M
