人類,應該為動物流淚

兩年多前開始在AM730 的FRESH專欄寫我的「動物緣」,第一篇題目是「動物叫男人流淚」。人也好,動物也好,有緣相交,就投放了感情。不論是友情、愛情、親情,一生難免教我們真情地哭。而我,半生人為動物流的眼淚應該比人多。只因為,人世間的事,令我憤怒多於讓我感動,但動物的遭遇,卻讓人越來越難過。

(作者按:這是我在FRESH寫的最後一篇,下星期會轉到AM730的報紙版專欄。)

想呼應我兩年前寫的第一篇,這是我為一隻病死街頭的流浪狗所寫的:

I used to know a dog

a white stray dog that used to hang around the end of the block
this poor old dog

was

So shy to be touched
not to mention being washed


I used to feed him
he used to curl himself in the corner
when the darkness dims in
with no strength to lift his head 
yet

When he hear my footsteps
his tail spins

we used to talk
I know he can speak
he didn't
cos he’s simply too weak

I looked into his eyes
with dirt around and tears inside

Then one day

he had his body pasted on the floor
words written in his eyeballs -

‘would you like to leave this city
this town dose not smell too pretty’

by the time I lost him

I realize

when god created dogs

he didn’t create home for them to live
when god created human
he didn’t create love for them to give.......

你可能覺得我是一個過分愛動物而不近人情的動物膠,也許我真的是,也許有不少看我的文章的朋友都是。

人類,應該為動物流淚。

以後逢星期五,AM730報紙版再續動物緣。
