I Shed Tears

I shed tears for an animal killed
I shed tears for its life stilled
I shed tears for the hunter that laughs
I shed tears for his cold empty heart
I shed tears for the chimpanzee that screams
I shed tears for the family unseen
I shed tears for their home destroyed
I shed tears for those that cannot now hide
I shed tears for the whale harpooned
I shed tears for the many that will be soon
I shed tears for man’s cruelty and greed
I shed tears for his immaterial need
I shed tears for the seal cub clubbed
I shed tears as the snow runs red with blood
I shed tears as it cries in fear
I shed tears as no-one hears
I shed tears for the wolf hunted with hate
I shed tears for the realisation way too late
I shed tears as the wolf is destroyed
I shed tears as its life is with toyed
I shed tears for human life too
I shed tears for the likes of me and you
I shed tears for those treated wrong
I shed tears for those sadly gone

I shed tears none for the evil and cruel
I shed nothing for these nasty sad fools
