How in 2050

There once was a place called Salem
Where girls lived deep in fear
Of being accused of witches brews
Then knowing death was near.

Another time in Georgia
When black men had no rights
They were beaten and degraded
With so many sleepless nights.

And most recently it's gay men
Who have proudly proclaimed "it's time!"
That love from man to man
Be simply not a crime.

There was a place called Auschewitz
Where Polish and Jews were gassed
It's a very sad reminder
Of how very cruel our past.

And can you believe that women
Were not allowed to read?
They could not vote or think freely
They existed merely to please.

And now the time we live in
It's just the same you see
Animals are the slaves and women
Longing to be free!

There is but just one difference
For animals have no voice.
They cannot band together
They simply have no choice!

They must follow all our orders
Die for many meals
They give their lives for research
And have no courts from which to appeal.

They are stuck inside the evil trap
of peoples compassionless views.
Animal lovers are their only hope
Of spreading this vital news....

Animals do have feelings!
The feel loneliness and pain!
We must love and respect them!
We'll all have much to gain!

So let us come together
And fight for this huge cause
For we are their last chance
To change our current laws.

Lets not waste our time on hunters
Or argue with the blind
Lets focus on the children
And educate their minds.

If we can teach compassion
as Liz C. Stanton did long ago
Then animals can have a future
And a culture of compassion can grow.

And so my friends, I leave you
With just one thought in mind
The suffering of the animals
Is caused by humankind.

Humans have a past of cruelty
As the slaves and women knew
But with time and education
Civility slowly grew.

And so I pray to heaven
That 50 years from now
Animal suffering will be nonexistent
And people will look back and think HOW?
