Respect The Animals
Each and every day I learn and read about,
All the animals that are in need,
The circus and rodeo, the fur and factory farm!
The pain, the fear, the unbelievable harm!
But the RSPCA stops all that,
They save puppies and little cats!
They even save rabbits too,
Even scruffy dogs that chew your gym shoes!
You can go and adopt little mice,
That are just bigger than a spongy dice!
Go and adopt dogs, who can be your best friend,
And get a cat who loves you until the end!
I adopted one so why can't you?
Please, they need a friend too!
Don't be mean,
They're so keen!
Please don't ignore this,
Yes you! Sir or Miss!
Keep it in mind, just think,
Or these animals' hearts will sink!

Winning a Polar Bear Adoption Package
The Eyeless Shrimp
The eyeless shrimp silently mocked others
As he swam in the depths of the sea
For he thought himself ever so lucky
To not see the world’s misery.
Yet the truth of the world lay hidden
As the blind shrimp washed up on the shore
Hidden in the tongue of a wise old owl
That had flown across the old barren moor.
The shrimp could only listen
As the discerned owl approached
For the shrimp’s eyes once more had failed him
This, the wise owl encroached.
‘How I pity you,’ the prejudiced did say
‘For you have no choice but to endure
The crime and punishment of animal society
With that tainted vision of yours.’
The wise old owl did not reply
Only laughed at the shrimp’s modesty
And at the shrimp’s own moulded vision
Of a world that he could not see
Yet the wise old owl did not mock the shrimp
Instead he gave him the meat of his tongue.
Of the love and the kindness that also roamed the Earth
And finally the shrimp did belong.
