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

By Heidi Stephenson

Terrorizing the trapped, the terrified?

Racing to redden the writhing sea?

Animals (fellow beings) attacked?…Atrocity!

Delighting in death cult devilry?

Intentionally ignoring the cries of the dying, the suffering?

Trench warfare against the helpless unarmed?

Innocence stabbed at, cut up, butchered alive?

Ordinary people lost… in a Satanic frenzy?

New life, torn out of wild wombs?

Not all ‘traditions’ deserve preserving: slavery, wife-beating, cannibalism...the massacres of fellow beings.
