Don’t want to end up in the pan!”

I have a right to life you know,

Your dinner I am not!”

Eating me is a crime against nature.”

In peace on Earth like Heaven?”

Let me be happy, free and wild.”

Just let me live my life for me

Like rescued piglets can.”

  2. Fantastic job It can be used in schools to promote awareness.
    If you adapt the language and use a more simplistic way for the animals to express themselves, it could even be used internationally for children who are learning English as a second or foreign language. Excellent work!
