Animal abuse Child abuse
Use, abuse, mis use, disuse -all the humans and animals do
Child abuse, animal abuse engage the attention of some
One or the other in the society! People crying sharp and loud
Against the child ABUSER we come across day in and day out!
Including PETA- People for Ethical Treatment of Animals
Are not as vociferous, lo, as those against Child Abusers
No age or sex is observed in those who abuse children cruel
Worse still is animal abuse- poor creations of the Almighty!
Animal abuse is as cruel as child abuse deserving
Punishment equal- as both are innocent-fail in understanding
Unable to express what they want to- inscrutable are God’s
Creation-Let us bring sense in those who abuse children and animals!
