Writing To Further Animal Welfare

Larry the Lamb

Larry the Lamb

It’s your special day Larry the lamb

Your chance to earn your reward from man

We’re sending you off with all your friends

To the men with the knives where your life ends

It’s not that we don’t like you Larry the lamb

But we just want to eat you don’t you understand

We know you have feelings, but we just don’t care

To us you’re a chop, cooked up not to rare


Oh don’t be sad now Larry the lamb

Butcher bill is a very nice man

His knives are especially sharp and thin

So you won’t feel a thing as they slide in


We don’t have to eat you Larry the Lamb

But we love our lamb chops so we eat what we can

Somewhere deep inside we know it’s a lie

We know we shouldn’t cause the millions to die


But who is going to stop us Larry the Lamb

Some super brain animal with a master plan

It’s not going to happen you will continue to bleed

Because man will always be driven by greed

  1. This is exactly how they feel. So very well and poetically stated, Paul.

  2. Wow! ….Paul…..this is piece of work. You really have a way of influencing empathy so that humans can step into the place of the nonhuman animal. Please continue to transmit.

  3. Thanks so much Gerean, I actually found that poem and a couple more which were still draft whilst I was sorting out my posts for the re-vamped site. I have listed the one poem I have of yours, but if you have some more just send me the link and I will add them:)
