A poem called Survival

We have prisons,
animals have farms.
We have mental illness,
animals have a behaviour issue.
We have homes,
animals have habitats.

Why are animals different?

We have he and she,
animals have it or that.
We have sex,
animals mate.
We wave,
animals wag.

Why are animals different?

we have weapons,
animals have horns,
teeth.
We have war,
animals have a fight.

Why are animals different?

When one shoots another,
it is called MURDER.
When one shoots animal,
it is called LIFE.

When one hits another,
it is called ABUSE.
When one hits animal,
it is called TRAINING.

When one eats another,
if you have another option,
it is called CANNIBAL.
When one eats animal,
if you have another option,
it is called NORMAL.

When one locks another,
in a cage.

When one causes another pain.
When one deprives necessities from another.

We call it TORTURE.

When one treats animals like such,

it is known as survival.
