“Speciesism!”

Dedicated to all animals that suffer at human hands.

        I was wandering around the world when all of a sudden I found myself locked in a cage. My freedom was violated! I was beaten up, for no apparent reason, I left with no food and water for days, I almost starved!

And then suddenly someone threw me a piece of indescribable something! My body was aching, I had no space of whatsoever to move around and I wanted so desperately to get out of there and run towards my home.  I miss my family you see…they must be DEAD worried about me not knowing what has happened to me.

When the night falls, I am scared of these creatures; They have empty eyes! They are frightful tall dark shadows, my mother used to call them «humans»!  I remember now…I smelt DEATH coming off them.

I hear screaming voices…For how long will I bear this?  Can someone help me?  I want to break free!  What have I ever done to these «humans» to deserve all the hatred I get?

I miss the smell of fresh air, the smell of forest. Oh, and how much I miss the blue sky! I wish I could look at the blue sky once more and feel the sunshine…in my heart.

L’uomo buono deve continuare a nutrire i suoi cavalli anche quando sono sfiancati dagli anni, e così deve curarsi dei sui cani non solo quando sono cuccioli, ma anche quando sono invecchiati.” (Plutarco in Pisani, 2010, p. XI)
