Ode to the animals by Grant Harbison

See love in an animal’s eye
See the look that asks us why
Why we war
Why we hate
What for
Wild or tame
They are almost the same
No malice
No greed
Just take what they need
See the way the protect their young
Put us to shame
Yet remain unsung
Let us hang our heads in shame
For all that has gone wrong we are to blame
And for all our injustices
I hope you will forgive
Maybe one day we’ll find a way to live
