The Paw Law of 1601

Passed by a show of many a paw,

the Paw Law – as it was known –

made it illegal to own

a bear for the pursuits

of boxing, dancing, baiting,

or waiting upon tables.

The Paw Law stated,

‘This law enables

the Bears of England

freedoms unheard of before.’

Sadly, humans had their own law

which did ensure that ‘all’ animals were unequal,

and some moreso than others.

It would be another thousand years

before animals of all ilks (including elks)

were even considered to be like

sisters or brothers.

Change is slow,

as the immutability of the inhumanity of humanity

is always saying, ‘No!’

This may sound slightly familiar.

If you go down to the words today,

you had better go under a pseudonym.

If you jot down a few words today,

what message will you include in ‘em?

For every word you write is unique

depending upon the order you seek

for today’s the day that writers will hone their technique.
