I am imprisoned here all alone,
My master leaves me as I am disowned.
I am tied to this chain all day,
My future seems to be dark and grey.
I am ill-treated for pleasure,
You stand and watch the repressor.
I cry and mourn in gruesome pain,
My voice only gurgles down the drain.
I am tortured for no fault of mine,
I am given a slow death with strychnine.
Doesn’t your heart ache at my plight?
But you turn your eye away, to keep me out of sight.
I know my end is going to be near,
You breed in me, the very fear.
I am a living being, just as you,
Then why are my emotions misconstrued?
I am very loyal and friendly,
I love you unconditionally and immensely.
Save the animals before it’s too late,
Or our numbers will attenuate.
