Poems of compassion dedicated to the non-human animals who share this planet with us and the people who fight for them.

I witness
By Julie Dickinson

I see images sprawled.
Trawling through digital horror.
Ache in me.
Suffering.

Suez animals trapped.
Ships.
Mapped out world.
With grisly veins of animal routes.

No passage justifiable.
No death worth it.
Ban live exports.
Ban human ignorance.

Wake up to reality
Of atrocity.
Of heart breaking cruelty.
Stop the endless cycle.

I witness.
You witness.
They witness.

We, who watch, must do something.
