A Poem by Andrea A. Wentz

Our furry friends and strangers in our world.


Oh you, two eyes, a nose, a mouth

Ears, a tail, fur and hair

Whiskers and paws

Such comfort and companionship

All of your species I love

I cherish, I would protect

Oh you, two eyes, a nose, a mouth

Ears, skin, hands and feet

Clothes and shoes

Such an annoyance and burden

Living in their homes, like me

Driving down the road, like me

Watching their favorite shows, like me

Worrying over their job, like me

Counting their money, like me

Loving their parents and children, like me

Believing in God, like me

Praying, like me

Oh what contempt I hold for them

So different they are, like me

I will ignore them

Make war on them

I will hate them

And love my furry companions

While he may enter my home,

Steal the food off my plate,

Rip up my furniture,

Deficate on my carpet,

And yowl in my ear,

Oh how much more loveable

My furry friend

How contemptable my own species

Who leaves me to my business

As I do them...

Wow, this really made me think. We treat animals so much better than our fellow people a lot of the time... Awesome poem. It flows very well too. Just great!
