' Humble And Humane - Poem by shimon weinroth

species, species one and all
who is smartest of them all-
domestic animals invented, breeds
caged to feed, to work, to please
for comfort and our ease,

can they think, ache and communicate
we gathered and wandered
vast steepes, arid deserts, smokey jungles
climbed craggy cliffs, immigrated
to seashores and off shores

ranged and roamed the planet
paternal scientists became
of their fate and destiny
feed starve and eat, often make extinct
humane and humble ask, can they think

    Your words are the signature of your great thoughts.
    Should we be proud as the race Human or feel shy!
    You do not say and neither do I.

    It pinches deep inside.
