When god created animals
Did he really have in his plan
To have them caged up in small spaces,
Or was this an idea of man?
Did he really mean hens should be able
To scratch and to pick on the ground
To preen and to ruffle their feathers,
And be able to look all about.
Did he really think that Pat Porker,
Would be able to root with his snout
And to walk in and out of his pig sty
And be able to roam all about.
And did the thought ever strike Noah,
As the animals went two by two,
That maybe in the near future
They might end up in a zoo.
But wait, you say, all this is progress
And that it’s been clinically tried,
Since rabbits don’t really mind chemicals
Daily being sprayed in their eyes.
So maybe in the near future,
Man will listen and stand,
And think did God in his wisdom,
Really give man a free hand.
