THEY WILL NEVER KNOW A SPRING
As I walked along the street today
My heart began to sing,
For I passed a mass of daffodils
And I felt the joy of Spring.
I marveled at the colours
Of the blossom everywhere,
And it filled my heart with joy
To see the trees no longer bare.
Then I thought of all the animals
And no more my heart could sing, And I ached for all the millions
Who will never know a Spring.
I thought of pigs in factory farms
In squalid filthy pens,
And I thought of spider-ridden sheds Stacked up with battery hens.
They’ll never feel a ray of sun,
Their hearts will never sing,
Locked away from life and beauty They will never know a Spring
URGENT: California’s ag-gag bill exempts factory farms that accidentally record their own abuses.
Please REBLOG and call today!
UPDATE: Great news! California’s #AgGag bill was just pulled by sponsor! No hearing today. This zombie bill may arise later in the year, but it is dead for now. Safe to say that this is all due to everyone making calls, and all the work of groups like The Humane Society of the United States, ASPCA, Teamsters, The Sierra Club, Government
Accountability Project and many others. via Green Is The New Red
