All - Poem by Colleen Courtney
Lions, tigers and elephants
Deer, rabbits, squirrels
Big and small
Some living in far off jungles of the world
Others in the woodlands of our own backyards
But ALL deserve to go and roam about their way
Trusting and believing
That they are safe to do so
ALL deserve to lay their heads down at night
With the hope that they will awaken
With tomorrows light
ALL animals-they ask for nothing
Only wishing for and expecting ALL of the above
Which is nothing more than what
We wish for and expect as human beings
So why do some feel that it is okay
That it is their right
To hunt down, shoot and kill
These innocent and unsuspecting
It is not okay!
It is cruel!
It is heinous!
It is an abomination!
And it needs to stop
It needs to end
Once and for ALL.
