A Place for the Animals

Oh, Loving God
Who created them all,
From small creeping bugs
To giraffes to tall.

Who in our care
Has placed your creatures
I ask, "Why is cruelty
One of man's features?"

Forced to give us food
And pull our carts,
Have we no pity
For their broken hearts?

Science and Medicine
Are yet another tool,
For causing them pain
And being so cruel.

And when the circus
Comes to town,
Do we see their tears
When the curtain goes down?

Some people wear fur
As they stroll through the city,
I think it's so heartless
And not very pretty.

Deep in the woods,
A place some call their home,
They run in great fear
From the hunters that roam.

Their sad eyes show us
There's no understanding,
Why man is indifferent
And so very demanding!

They give up their lives,
They give us their best,
All they are asking
Is a place just to rest.

And so, My Dear Lord
I Pray unto You,
Save a place in Your Kingdom
For the animals too.
