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.
By Tim Vosper
From Save the Frogs
I can see him outside through my window
The smoothest guy on the scene
He's a cool stellar fellah
A garden pond dweller
Who's gangly and groovy and...green?!
But poor froggy's in terrible trouble
Hear his amphibian cries
We won't stand for that!
Save his habitat
Try to see things through his bulbous eyes
Never inhibit the ribbit
Revoking the croaking is wrong
Take a lung full of air
Fix a fly with your glare
And join the triumphant frog throng!
