Live Exports

Australia has seen some of the worst cases

around

thousands of sheep and cows

have died

and few had made a sound

 

Animals Australia took the matter to

the people and with energy

really thought it through

 

the government

are not that concerned

for them its the export trade

its money in the coffers

and trading partners fade

 

away quite soon

when faced with angry people

who might say

that what they are doing

is wholly wrong

and that is not the way

 

animals are animals

people eat them so

they have to die

and when they die

and how they die

the blow

 

is frighteningly obvious

so they are tortured on the way

they are animals

who cares about their feelings

day to day

 

thats a real hard story line

for activists to see

thats a real blow in many way

to a good democracy

 

they have to die

so who cares

ship them on their way

out of sight out of mind

thats the present way

 

caring about animals

is caring about us all

we are sentient beings

when  we hear so many call

 

the sheep the calves the pigs

they all have rights and feelings too

and should not be neglected

whatever people do

 

 

Live exports is a bad event

its wrong, it isn’t right

shipping living souls abroad

imagine, their fright

 

an alien world of movement

on the ocean in a hold

bundled together and treated like cargo

going to where they’ve been sold

 

off loaded like cargo

these are living beings

with hearts and with feelings

and hopes and desires

 

they are not inanimate

imagine their thinking

no food and no water

and too many liars

 

 

our politicians quote laws

ineffectual

they turn their heads

to Europe you go

these are not decisions that we can make

these days

now  we are part of the big

Brussels show

 

if you don’t like it

now you can lump it

this is the dictat we hear

loud and clear

the ag laws just passed

by the tory toffs telling

the corporate gods

they have nothing to fear

 

 

they silence objection

they tell us don’t worry

we’re watching out for you

that is our realm

as for live exports

there’s far more important

things to now think of

but we’re at the helm

 

 

you are just minions

millions of minions

animal earthlings

don’t worry your head

if you eat animals

then you are culpable

and anyway

soon they will be dead

 

this is reality

this is whats happening

we activists can go this way and that

stand at the docks gates

and yell  off our high horse

but Europe stands firm

thats where they are at

 

so a battle of sorts rages

in our emotions

we hear and we see

animal stand in

fear

we know they are tortured

we know they are butchered

we know they are eaten

billions each year

 

all we can do is stop and be vegan

that will help some

but only a few

most of the mass population are eating

more and more animals

that is my view
