HORSE HAIKU

Horses die
in
a barn fire
.. captive to
human greed
****

In Alaska horses overworked
leap over mountain cliffs
committing suicide to avoid
the thirst, the hunger,
the heat, the cruelty of
forced labor

In the Civil War, millions?
of horses were gored, shot,
killed for food

At a Kentucky racetrack, a horse
breaks her leg..
it hangs by a tendon
from her knee.. she is
one of tens of thousands
so injured

Clint Eastwood
works to end the trip
wiring of horses
in Hollywood and
around the world

In France, horses
hang upside down
at a slaugterhouse


In Lancaster Pennsylvania
the New Holland Sales
and Stables sells
39% of its horses
for slaughter

Richard Burton
misses an oscar
after a record 7th
nomination..
souls of horses
nixed him after
a horse was blinded
in the film Equus

In Central Park,
taxis and cars and trucks
regularly slam into
carriage horses.

Throughout history
horses have been kicked,
fallen down hillsides,
broken their legs in
fox hunting races by
'the unspeakable in
full pursuit of the inedible',
died of thirst, died of
loneliness shipped from
home to home.


Erica Jong's grandfather
painted a massive oil
portrait of horses
galloping ashore out
of the sea
( a painting of his
own granddaughter and others reborn
in 1942..the year of the horse..from the
sea of suffering of
WW 2.)

Racing horses die in
fires. They are seen as
cash registers. Competitors
or insurance seeking owners
have often arranged
arson or arsenic.



COW HAIKU


In Chino California
6500 cows
suffocated as they
sank into the mud

In North Dakota untold
numbers froze and
suffocated in
20 foot high snow drifts.

In southern Ohio
a cow slipped on mud.. her back legs
went both ways.. she was split up
the middle and left there over

In Maryland cows
are electroshocked away
from their babies.. stolen
to be butchered as veal

In Vermont cows have
infection encrusted udders
as they bleed from
milking machines

cow was kicked repeatedly
and pulled off the truck
with ropes

In West Virginia, a truck
filled with cows was in
an accident. 75 cows
spilled down the mountainside.

In Colorado, the
winter wind rips through
the slats at 81 mph
as the
slaughterhouse bound animals
huddle iin trucks speeding
through mountain passes.



In Texas, trains full
of cowssuffocating from
heat.. have downers
.. 4 d animals..
dead dying diseased
debilitated.


At New York's "stock"
exchange they
hide the truth
of Mad Cow
to try to protect
the Mad Cow Dow

In Kansas untold
millions of cows have
frozen in blizzards

In Wisconsin, after
a lifetime of giving
a lifetime of slavery
exhausted old "milk" cows
are sent to slaughter
for fast food chain hamburgs.

In Minnesota, 'dairy' cows
are given food (not feed..
a chauvinist term) with
animal products in it..
causing Mad Milk.

In Oklahoma cows'
ears are stapled with numbers

In Wyoming, bulls
are castrated

In Iowa the smoke
from the branding irons
of cows rises to God
and asks for mercy

In the land around
Yakima Washington
.. lived a 4 year old
little girl.. what
was the name of this
little "mad cow"?

What have been the names
of the billions of cows
who have gone to their deaths
terrified in Illinois?

In Pennsylvania pharmaceutical
labs calves were slashed..
and smallpox sprayed
on their gashes

in a few weeks the gashers
come back
and plane off the scab.. and grind it into powder..
powder which contained BLV or bovine leukemia virus
.. the same disease as HTLV except in a different species

In Calgary, little calves
are slammed to the ground
their necks and legs breaking
in a rodeo called the Calgary
Stampede


In every state in the union
cows are electroshocked,
are bleeding, are kicked,
are pulled off trucks
are pulled from their babies

NOTES:


Ebola from eating gorillas and chimps
AIDS also from eating monkey meat

live chicken markets.. they hang upside alive

and on the tables.. blood drips onto chickens with their legs tied

factory farms too
cause avian flu

no room to spread theirwings
buckeye description
epa worker nearly drowned
6 to a cage
debeaked so they wont' peck each other to death
living in constant artificial light
freezing in metal sheds
roasting in metal sheds

MOUSE AND RAT HAIKU

Trillions of mice rats and guinea
pigs have been sacrificed on the
altars of greed and ambition
by pawns of pharmaceutical
and government agencies.

50,000 animals drowned at
the Univ. of Texas. No researchers
drowned.


A similar situation occurred during
Katrina.


At Ohio State, supported by
a unanimous vote of the illegal
Supreme Court of Ohio (fraudulently
installed by Diebold, ESS etc.)
students are told to break
mice spines.



Methods of Mouse Killing in American Labs

Some suffocate them in plastic bags.
Other use little Purina mouse sized
guillotines, advertised in the
magazine Lab Animal.
Still others break their necks.
The sadistic feed them to snakes.
Those in denial delegate the task.
Some mice are needled to death.
Some are given poison.
Some die with their tiny fingers
caught in mouse traps.
Some die in agony after having
cancer or caustic chemicals
introduced into their bodies
.. or in forced sleeplessness
or forced swimming experiments
.. or having had their limbs
cut off.
The entire Ohio Supreme Court
ruled in 2006 that President
Holbrook of OSU could continue
a course in which students
break mice spines.


Now in Schuylkill
they don't in schools kill.
All the little ones.. go straight to GOD

RABBIT HAIKU

At the University of Maryland,
Perdue gave millions to veer
the university into rabbit meat
production and chicken assembly
line production.
A course in which each student
was to raise, kill and skin
his own animal was cancelled
when animal rights activists
stole the rabbits on the eve
of slaughter day.

PIG HAIKU

Pig flesh is forbidden to Muslims,
Jews, Christians aware of Jesus'
diet, Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, etc.
Yet factory farms churn out
billions of butchered pigs,
whose lives are hell and
whose waste fills the waters
of the world with pfiesteria
or red tide.

Pigs often die of thirst,
truck crashes, smashing
as they are shipped
to be murdered.

Pigs have been skinned
alive in conveyor belt
or assembly line
operations. The Republicans
doubled the speed of
the slaughterhouse line.

FISH HAIKU

Anglers are stranglers.

Fish die of suffocation
or are smashed.

(Many more species are waiting to be
added... sheep and kangaroos from
Australia, bulls in Spain, turtles in China,
dolphins and whales in Japan, Norway,
Iceland, and the US etc)
