First, let me apologize for the poor artwork. I ran out of paper and this watercolor paper is terrible.
Clover’s heart is broken. He’s been thinking of all the unloved and lonely dogs left outside alone in winter, all the time, really, but especially in winter. No warm beds, or soft caresses during the night. Some have frozen water, and frozen food. Once he saw the pictures on television, and heard the stories, he started howling. The chicklets and warming bunnies are doing their best to help him, but he can’t understand the cruelty that lives within the human heart.
He said he would like to make the owners live outside, alone, with nothing, maybe a wooden bare house, maybe not. Some dogs are chained. He said his heart is truly broken and cannot be put back together.
The chicklets offered to set up a rescue mission, but he said they won’t be able to save all of the dogs who are suffering. Some have arthritis, some have never known kindness, or love. He seems inconsolable, and the chicklets don’t know what to do. AND THEY CAN’T ESCAPE…THEY ARE PRISONERS WHO ARE TORTURED EVERY SINGLE DAY UNTIL THEY DIE.
The chicklets, as sweet and loving as the are, do not forgive, or forget. They think those things encourage repeat behavior. All the animals who suffer in Factory Farm and at the hands of human, are things that can never be forgiven, or forgotten. There are no excuses. None at all. They are slaughtered, eaten, starved, debeaked, tortured and murdered. And now Clover is sad because of his species.
Cover didn’t understand the hatred and evil that lives inside some human hearts. Now he knows, and his heart is broken for all the dogs who have nothing and are tortured minute to minute, by thoughtless and ugly humans. He said he would bite all the people, if he could, and chain them to a tree. He would give them frozen water and let them lick it. He said the world is not longer beautiful.
I can relate to Clover. My heart is filled with rage and thoughts of revenge for all of the helpless animals who suffer and die without ever knowing kindness. Cruelty to animals, women and children, people of color and those who are different, continue unabated. I have been taught by examples, that this place is hell, and even the fluffy balls of chicklet love, know that. Human trafficking constant fear, child abuse, it’s all the same thing. All done to those who are helpless…those with no voice, no choice.
What a pathetic species we are. Other animals set wonderful examples for us…examples we ignore. I’m sick about the dogs left outside. Misery and suffering never ends.
HOPELESS is an deadly word and an ugly thing. Dogs with no hope. I am really empty right now. All I can see is death of spirit, and hope. Suffering everywhere. So ugly. Poor souls and the ugly people who torture and disregard their feelings. Such a terrible place.
