FOR THE ANIMALS OF CHINA


FOR THE ANIMALS OF CHINA!
Written by Beth

TO WHOM IT CONCERNS, I WAS BORN WITH FUR,
WITHOUT EVER KNOWING, THE DANGERS THAT LURE.

TO WHOM IT CONCERNS, I LIVE IN A CAGE,
AND HAVE BEEN LIVING IN IT, SINCE THE YOUNGEST OF AGE.

TO WHOM IT CONCERNS, I HAVEN'T BEEN FED,
MY BONES ARE NOW SHOWING, AND SOON I'LL BE DEAD.

TO WHOM IT CONCERNS, I'VE BEEN BEAT WITH A STICK,
THROWN INTO CAGES, BLUDGEONED, AND KICKED.

TO WHOM IT CONCERNS, MY FRIENDS WERE ALL KILLED,
BEAT, SKINNED ALIVE, PROCESSED AND CHILLED.

TO WHOM IT CONCERNS, MY FEAR IS QUITE STRONG,
MY DAYS ARE NUMBERED, I DON'T HAVE VERY LONG.

TO WHOM IT CONCERNS, I KNOW THAT MY FATE,
IS TO END UP AS CLOTHING, OR ON SOMEBODY'S PLATE.

TO WHOM IT CONCERNS, I WANT YOU TO SEE,
THE ONLY ONE MY FUR BELONGS TO, IS ME.

I WANT THIS TO BE, A LESSON TO LEARN,
SO I THOUGHT I WOULD TELL IT, TO WHOM IT CONCERNS.
