“Of all the creatures, man is the most detestable.
Of the entire brood, he's the only one that possesses malice.
He is the only creature that inflicts pain for sport, knowing it to be pain.
The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority;
But the fact that he can do wrong, proves his moral inferiority.”
The animal cruelty stories continue
Each one, now worse than the last
I am now starting, to sadly believe
Compassion, is a thing of the past
This dog was severely beaten with a pipe
Deep, massive wounds about her head
Then, she was wrapped in a newspaper
Tossed into the trash, and left for dead
A garbage man, on his assigned city route
Had grown accustomed to murdered pets
But, when he very sadly found this latest
He heard a whimper; she wasn’t dead yet
So, he decided to take her to an animal shelter
Where they very quickly, had to remove her eye
Twenty-two of her broken teeth had to be extracted
This severely battered soul, made everyone there cry
De De - the discarded, one eyed, toothless, Dachshund
Has now been adopted, by one of those who provided care
She sees more and more of this horrendous cruelty, every day
And she sadly knows, there are many more like De De, out there
The animal cruelty stories continue,
Each one, now worse than the last;
I’m now starting, to very sadly believe,
Human Compassion, is part of our past.
