market displayed, restaurant-fare their fate.

 

Mindlessly consumed on fun “festive” days,

humans make helpless, poor animals pay.

 

Confined without compassion or regret:

‘kind companions’ culled – thoughtless mindset.

 

See dogs deeply smile, such soulful eyes,

Fake medicinal properties, sex-superstitions!

Protests repressed, quashed pleading petitions.

 

O canine creator, show that you care:

divinely interfere with cruel Asian affairs!
