Animal cruelty

by

Ellen Southwell

Your boot
Connecting with my side
Body going numb
Losing my pride.

Can't you hear my cries
From out here in the cold?
You can help me
How many times do you have to be told?

My bowl is empty
Not a crumb.
How can you be so stupid
Act so dumb?

Blood everywhere
Knife in my chest
At the moment
I'm not feeling my best.

Can't you hear my cries
From out here in the cold?
You can help me
How many times do you have to be told?

Needle goes in
Out falls my hair
Man writes it down
How is this fair?

This must finish
They don't deserve it
It's just stupid
We have to quit.
