Poetry written by Jacques Martin
(You can read more of his poetry at: http://auxanimaux.blogspot.com)

Humanity and its vanity

God is there in your dog
In the ant and the elephant
The cat and the caterpillar
The horse or the hog

He is there even in the vulture
In the smallest creature
Whatever its size in nature
Never mind which feature

Man and animal we are all
Sons and daughters of the Sun

But man is cruel and selfish
He eats flesh and fish
And there is so much harm
On his bloody farm

Earth is round and to share
And animals are not silent
But it is man who is deaf

We donít need beasts to die
And end up as meat in a pie
Their fate is to live and mate
Not to finish in your plate

You could at least spare the red blood
Of those who move free around the world
Since you canít do without the green sap
Of those who directly draw from the earth

Unless to relieve suffering
It is not for man to take life but God

Horror show

Those bears that have to suffer the unbearable
Cruelly hooked by the nose
For the sadists to applause
The most unendurable dance

The elephantsí performance
In fear of the brutal trainer
Of the inhumane circus
Could seem less harsh

But shedding the bullís blood
Is undoubtedly as barbarous
In spite of all the decorum
In the revolting arena

Same for the hens and dogs
As for the dolphin or tiger
All forced to enter
In the horror circle

The violent man who annoys
Every single animal
When will he understand
That they are not toys?

4/12/2005



Man may be mad

Animals beware
Some men come and lend you a hand
While others try to erase you from the land
One day they give you bread
The next they want you dead

Animals beware
Man may be duplicitous
And can be malicious
Here offering assistance
There inflicting sufferance

Animals beware
Be careful who you trust
Man can be so unjust
Stroking you here
Killing you there

Yes animals beware
Of man and his treachery
Otherwise his betrayals
Will have the end of you

Compassion

Those ducks I love to see them live
While others like to eat their sick liver

Never mind from which valley or river
Be they from the sea or the land
Do they walk swim or slither

From the ant to the elephant
The pig to the pigeon
The mouse to the titmouse
The roach to the cockroach
The snail to the whale
The chimp to the shrimp
The rat to the bat
The cat to the caterpillar
The fly to the butterfly
The dog to the frog
The horse to the hog

Do they have scales shells fur or feathers
I respect and love all animals
Like some acknowledge their sole dog
