Here’s a poem I wrote recently for a vigil Progress for Science held in the neighborhood of David Jentsch, a vivisector at UCLA.

Dearest monkeys,
I am sorry
Sorry that my fellow earthlings
Fail to see you as a sentient being
I am sorry
Sorry that these humans
Usurped your right to live freely
To love freely; to feel freely
Without reserve
Without restraint
Without hindrance
I am sorry
Sorry that these vivisectors
Choose to oblige their avarice
Over listening to their hearts
I am sorry
Sorry that these monsters
Reject compassion
Ignore reason and
Refuse to recognize your suffering
Despite this tumultuous sea of apathy,
I am hopeful
Hopeful that our small band of people
Will raise consciousness of your plight
I am hopeful
Hopeful that our small group of humans
Will someday cease your agony
I am hopeful
Hopeful that we earthlings
Will prevent these egregious crimes
From happening to others
Until then,
We will give you a voice
We will keep fighting
Until every cage is empty

I’m always falling for people who don’t seem to be right for me. 3:
