At This Moment
by [email protected] 

At this moment, somewhere near
so much pain and so much fear
In the air, sea and on land
the victim's die by the human hand

From the labs, the screams unheard
our taxes spent, tests absurd
Every 3 seconds another dies
only death silences the cries

Fur for only vanity's sake
there's no excuse, there is fake
Born with fur they are dying today
with their life they must pay

Billions slaughtered annually
hidden where we cannot see
Today's meal sentenced to death
for their body, the final breath

Trapped they linger in a zoo
if only it were freedom they knew
Year after year they still remain
imprisoned they have gone insane

The hunted fall to the ground
gun shots, the season's sound
No excuse, the bloodsport unfair
another drops right now somewhere

Death in the massive scales
no remorse for the torture and wails
if only mercy were employed
another's life wouldn't be destroyed
