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!
