Enslavement for Entertainment

The following poem I've written is in reference to the enslavement of animals, here in America, and abroad. I hope this particular poem will make people think twice about the zoos they tour, the circuses they enjoy, and the rodeos they pay to see.

God made men, men made slaves..........only animals remain caged!

.Behind bars we see eyes expressing lifeless emotion

.Chains collard to our necks as we hollar highest to the clouds

.Whips bashing our backs, we cry loudest to the crowds

."Lock them, mock them, clothe them, loathe them, clean, then demean them!" They say

.Taken from our lands, and sealed in ships like sold slaves

.Pulled into public views you call "zoos."

.Displaced for displays

.Disgraceful that you assume we are playful, even tasteful as dinners at diners you pay

.How dare you detain us like terrorists at Gitmo Bay?

.Do we not have civil rights you've all fought for generations?

.Though we cannot speak, our march for freedom can be heard in our hearts

.Is watching an ape climbing the highest building, then killed your entertainment for detainment?

.Caged inside with no room to roam

.Chained to our necks outside with nowhere to run

.Hunted, hounded as we flee to any land with a rising sun.

Who are the REAL animals who enslave for entertainment.......then kill for fun?
