Unbearable Pain

They cut you,
precious you,
  peeling away your skin
your life
   as you lay just alive in agony
utterly shocked at the horror
of
   Us

All this pain so some empty human could wear your skin
next to theirs for the pleasure and the status

for their pleasure and vanity
you died,
precious you,
with the horror of
Us
in your consciousness from your birth to your gruesome torturous end

What a miserable life you were bred into
neglected
unfed
unloved
cold
huddled in terror
you waited
to meet your grand destiny 
that Mankind the Civilized had in store for you

and humanity became a little less human this day
that they peeled your skin
your life
away
while you lay just alive in agony
utterly shocked at the horror
of
   Us.

Christine Jordaan (2013) 

The picture that I wrote this about... I could not post... I can't look at it.  Its too unbearable to look at.

What are we doing to the animals??
