Putting the Lid on It
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.

Putting the Lid on It
By Daniel North

Well, it must take such guts 
To shoot a baby cub thatís in a cage 
Using its existence as nothing but a trophy 
The sheer thought of it brings both 
Tears of sadness and a burning rage.

For kings of the bungle 
That stuff their heads without care 
Who never think about morals 
Nor the affects that has now deadened 
The brightness of their souls flare.

So allow these noble creatures to roam freely 
Where the merciless breeding farms once stood 
Thus rebuilding our spiritual connection with animals 
And finally putting the lid on 
This canned hunting for good.
