Is It Bad Enough For You?

A song inspired by the savage beating of a stray dog called Triton rescued by Kimba Refuge in Spain. Although the lyrics are not connected, the distress we felt after reading the story gave way to despair about the world we live in today. I sent the story to close friends and one swore and the other got drunk. We swore, got drunk and wrote this song. Sometimes you just have to get things out of your system or go insane.


*TRITON*

Is there only evil in this rotten cruel world?
I see hurt and pain and I don't know where to turn
And I'm about to break but my hands won't chop the wood
Is it bad enough for you?
Is it bad enough to do some good?

I lost the will but the money lender pays
It don't make no difference cos I'm bankrupt in this place
My heart bleeds love but they took it all away
Is it good enough for you?
Is it good enough to make you pray?

Rich man poor man broken bullet in the heart man
Nothin's workin' in this world we're all the same
Guns n' greed don't give the mother's baby feed
N' there's a government that won't sow any seed

Will the seas and forests lose their nature in the breeze?
Endangered life all and one we're on our knees
We take the land while the rivers run to dry
Is it good enough for you?
Is it good enough to learn to die?

Is there only evil in this rotten cruel world?
I see hurt and pain and I don't know where to turn
And I'm about to break but my hands won't chop the wood
Is it bad enough for you?
Is it bad enough to do some good?

- TRITON'S STORY -
(From Kimba Refuge Staff)

KIMBA REFUGE

There are those who think that as animal protection societies we are accustomed to all types of abuse, but there are dispicable people who continuously demonstrate to us just how far abuse can go by a useless sadist (in the broadest sense of the word), who aims all of his cruelty toward defenseless and weak beings. His cowardice would never allow him to become aggressive with a species that could defend itself.

Recently a poor little abandoned dog had the misfortune to cross the dirty path of someone in the village of "El CUERVO" (Sevilla).

"Tritón" is the name that we've given to this good little dog who was abandoned like many others in the above mentioned village. A nice young woman had been feeding him, along with a group of abandoned dogs in the village. And one day when she went out to feed them as usual, she found him in this lamentable condition.

Some dangerous halfwit from this village had tied him up with wire and then beat him nearly to death.

Thanks to Sandra, this dear little boy, Tritón, is now at Kimba. He has bruises all over his little body, two open wounds on his head, and he lost one of his pretty eyes, due to the beating from that degenerate which punctured the iris.

Tritón has lost a lot of blood and is very anemic. Our veterinarian told us that he will operate on the eye as soon as possible, but first the dog will need to recover a bit, as he would not be able to tolerate the anesthesia in his present condition.

At Kimba we are doing everything possible to nurse Tritón back to health, and the prospects are in his favor.

As you can see he is looking better. We have bathed him and we are hoping that next Thursday our veterinarian will operate on his eye.

One more abuse added to the endless arbitrary sufferings inflicted upon small beings by worthless individuals who without doubt will sooner or later begin to attack women and children. And if only for the possibility of that happening, the people of that village should investigate the atrocity that took place in their town. We are very certain that someone must have heard this poor animal crying.

But, of course, he is merely a ragged dog in EL CUERVO, a "beautiful and cultured" Andalusian village.

Triton is found battered, he has lost an eye from the ferocity of the beating

 
Triton is now safe at Kimba Refuge but his care will cost a lot of money in the weeks ahead
