Cordele Animal Control


​A Poem for Animal Control Officers


​I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter...the cast-offs of human society.
I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness, and betrayal.
​And I was angry.
​"God," I said, "this is terrible! Why don't you do something?"
God was silent for a moment, and then He spoke softly,
"I have done something," He replied. "I created you."
