The Animals from "Litany For A Peaceful Planet"
For the animals I plea
The Indians called us their four legged brothers.
They were right, you know.
HAVE WE NOT SHARED THE JOURNEY WITH YOU?
Two by two we’ve passed this way.
Just like you.
DO YOU NOT REMEMBER?
We have fed you.
We have been your friend
Our bodies have been tormented that yours might not.
Our lives have been sacrificed that you might live.
DO YOU SERIOUSLY ENVISION YOU SHALL
CLIMB OVER US THROUGH THE DOORS OF HEAVEN?
Honor our life stream.
Bless our sacrifice.
Heal our misuse.
