canines cramped in constricting crate,
market displayed, restaurant-fare their fate;
many dogs consumed on “festive” days,
humans make helpless animals pay.
cage crammed, no compassion, no regret:
culled kind companions, cruel mindset.
fake medicinal properties, superstitions!
repressed protest, ignored peoples petitions.
O creator of all creatures, show care,
interfere with foreign infernal affairs!
