a poem by Shashi Taneja

A Almighty created animals on this earth
     in varied colours and beautiful forms.
N Nature with its glory gave them place
     in jungles and other free land.
I It’s from times endless they multiplied
     and grew and grew.
M Man made them pets – cats, dogs, rabbits, etc. –
     cared and loved them.
A Animals kept in zoo in cages –
     lions, chimpanzees, monkeys, deer, elephants, pandas and rhinos etc.
L Let every animal of the earth be free –
     freedom is their birth right like you. O! human beings.
S Slave them not in your homes or in zoo –
     they are God’s creatures – they too feel and have a heart like you.
