Animal Save

Mo wrote this poem about the Animal Save protests she attends.

 

Standing with our banners bold

Determined that the truth be told

One banner saying 'mass murder here'

But no-one stops to shed a tear

From inside the slaughterhouse, death and fear we smell

For the animals it's Dante's Hell

And when the truck arrives

We see the terror in their eyes

Confused and frightened, not knowing their fate

But we are helpless to liberate

Outrage, sadness and despair

Our feelings in that stench-ridden air

And as they lay dying on the slaughterhouse floor

Having suffered so much, they can suffer no more

Their spirit broken, their life's blood drained

In our memory they will always remain

And so we stand with banners bold

Determined that the truth be told
