it's just an...

they smiled as they pulled on his head.
what if i move it this way,
instead.
they were amused as they twisted
his little arm...
it does not have feelings like us
so we cannot do it harm.
if we do not give it water
nor food to eat,
what will happen then,
will it collapse at our
feet.
if we throw it against
the walls of our ship,
will it stand up
or will it slip.
it runs red liquid now
perhaps it is blood.
we need to find another
this one is a dud.
oh why bother
what are they worth
these things that call
themselves man,
on this little planet
some
call
earth.
so away they flew from wherever they came.
the it on the floor...
they did not even name.

so before you say
it's"
just an animal,

dog, bird, or cat
read the above
and think about that!!!

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
