@Regrann from @torontopigsave - Born in the morning,
Baby and her mother.
The love she feels for her,
Is like no other.
A man comes along,
And drags her away.
She just wants her mommy,
Why can't she stay?
He locks her in a cage,
All by herself,
She's so scared and alone,
She knows nobody else.
She's locked inside there, scared and alone.
She just wants her mommy, she just wants to go home.
He shoves his hand inside her,
This all feels so wrong,
But she can't get away,
The bars are just too strong.
He hooks her to a machine,
Which pumps her milk right out,
'That milk is for my baby'
She tries to scream and shout.
The day her babies born,
She's overwhelmed with joy.
But the man comes along,
And takes away her baby boy.
She cries for days and weeks,
But she never sees him again.
And what's even worse,
Is that this happens time and time again.
She feels so tired and worn out,
She falls flat on her nose,
She can't get back up,
So be blasts her with a hose.
Her drags her onto a truck,
Like the day that she was born,
There are others mothers in the truck,
Together they all mourn.
There are people looking in the truck,
They try to give her water.
It brings a little smile to her face,
When she sees a mother and a daughter.
As she's shoved down walkway,
She bellows out and cries.
She knows what's coming next,
She knows she's going to die.
As the blood pumps out of her throat,
Her life flashes before her eyes,
She thinks about all the family she's lost,
And for one last time she cries.
All next week, we will be encouraging people to come along to our save vigils and show how they help raise awareness of animal rights in artistic ways.
We are asking people to design their own placards, with the winners receiving free Save Movement merchandise.
We are also encouraging people to write their own poems around Veganism/animal rights.
The winners will have their poems used in Save Movement posts and they too will receive free merchandise.
Please bring your artwork along to one of our Saves next week (June 26th-30th). Please see our Toronto Pig Save, Cow Save and Chicken Save Facebook events for details. #animalcruelty #animallovers #animalrights #vegan #veganis
