Animal Abuse

..."Animal abuse should be a felony."

Animal abuse should be a felony.
No creature should be beaten, tortured, and abused.
I have never known how anyone could be
Malicious and demented, so cruel and unforgiving.
And for what, what is the reward for you,
Laughter for a moment, looking big, showing off for your crew.

Animals, I have seen, 
Bloodied, beaten within an inch of their lives, dying.
Unloved, unwanted, neglected, abandoned
Starving for food and love, in my head I can hear them crying.
Every little piece of love is needed, every little soul needs fed.

    Thank you all for such kind words. Before joining this site I was in limbo with my writing, and you lovely people have given me the inspiration I needed to continue...

    Man have you got this one down, Gina! wonderful write and you have got the immature reasoning of it all down to a science. I know . I was sort of there in a way in my younger more stupid days until I grew up and saw how poorly I was treating God's lovely creatures at times. This should be a number 1. It is in my book. Thank you for writing about it. Very important write

    Robert~ thank you! Very kind words. I am glad that you realized what you were doing was wrong. I myself have looked back at things I have done and felt awful. I never really intentionally hurt animals but there were things I definitely should have done differently.

    I found your poem very hard to read, but it needed to be said. I love animals and I believe that people who hurt animals are emotionally sick. Well done, this poem really touched me. Lee
