An Animal Rights Poem from

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 Jenny Moxham

From time to time I've sometimes
Come across a little mouse,
Who'd somehow found his way into
My warm and cosy house.

I must admit I wasn't pleased
To see that little guest,
That little furry animal
That people call a pest.

But just the other day I saw
A little baby mouse,
His mum had turned my compost bin
Into a little house.

Now after seeing him each day
I realize mice are sweet,
In fact I even love to leave
A juicy little a treat.
