Just Like You


Just Like You


When you gaze into the garden
And see an insect walking by
Don’t squash it with your shoes
Instead watch it with your eyes
There’s a huge variety of insects
Hiding on or under plants
Bugs, beetles, and flies
And different types of ants
Snails don’t mind humans looking at them
In fact it makes them feel so grand
If no harm comes too them
When picked up by human hands
Some shy animals still hide away and won’t ever come out
Others will only re-appear when no humans are about
But imagine if an animal knocked down your door and stole your bed
You’d be mighty angry at him and surely harsh words would be said
So take a moment to think about the animals that do it so tough
Don’t you think hurt animals have really had enough? ?
See animals are smart and they know some humans aren’t nice
So if you are scared of a spider maybe you should think twice
Think about the spider and how afraid it is of you
And a spider knows all the damage, to its web, a human can do
Every tiny insect shares the world with you
They all feel pain exactly like you do
So don’t flick bugs with your fingers
Or squash them with your shoe
Remember insects and bugs are living creatures just like you

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
