Animals Aren't Human
by Susie McMillan

That animals aren't human
Is an often heard refrain
So at the hands of mankind
They have suffered through much pain

Just for the sake of science
Many forfeit their short lives
Some may be given cancer
Others, dissected with knives

A possible new breakthrough
Leading scientists will shout
Animal experiments
We could never do without

Then quietly they whisper
So perhaps no one will hear
That animals aren't human
Therefore test results weren't clear

That animals aren't human
Is a fact that will remain
Since animals aren't human
Please don't let them die in vain
