Animal Cruelty

I watched a shocking video today,
It’s an example of animal cruelty,
A variety of them killed without mercy,
Skinned to the bones while it breathing heavily.

A heart with no soul for doing this activity,
They are so scared shouting for their last day,
Pool of blood pouring to the ground of hell,
Small voices of dying animals, furs will sell.

The savaged men tossed them to the side,
A mountain of bloody creatures for sacrifice,
Looking at them begging to stop this inhumane act,
It breaks my heart and tears flowing down in fact.

The best thing we can do is to pray,
Show our love to animals every day,
Be vigilant, be concern,  and do your share,
They are God’s creation, please show your care.

    Maria; you are so right. People that do this type of things - have no heart. The litte animals have no way of defending themselves. It is our job to protect them. Thanks for sharing this with us. Lucilla

    It is one thing to have to have a meal or meals but another entirely when only use a small part of the animal and let the animal suffer so unnecessarily..Great work that is emotive and expressive..Sara

    I would not be able to even watch this. A person who would do this, is the kind of person who would resort to cannibalism if he were starving. Not decent person to live on the face of the earth.

    You must feel very strongly about animal cruelty. The result - a strong rhyme, couplets in quatrain. And very concise write. Nice work. :-) cheers!
