Does mankind really care for their plight?


Do the Chickens complain when the Cock starts to crow?

Do the Pigs grunt with glee when they play in the snow?

Does the Budgie feel sick as she swings to and fro?

Does mankind really care for their plight?


Do the Lions feel safe when they first spot a man?

Do the Antelope know that they’re part of the plan?

Does the hunting continue with never a ban?

Does mankind really care for their plight?


Does an Ostrich consider a lie-in today?

Do the Kids ever think, “We won’t bother to play”?

Do Giraffes get a pain in the neck every day?

Do they think of us kindly as they drift off to sleep?

I very much doubt that they might!
