Wearing Fur
Paint Her Divine
Staff and Subscription Information


"Whenever people say, 'We mustn't be sentimental,'
you can take it they are about to do something cruel.
And if they add, 'We must be realistic,' they mean
they are going to make money out of it."

--Brigid Brophy

Paint Her Divine

Look at her, will ya?
Standing there so proud.
Wearing someone elses` skin.
Dead animals draped over her body.
Pieced together furry flesh.
Heads, tails, and paws hanging lifeless,
Blood stains covered with satin linings.
Sterilized orifices clasped around shellacked "snout" buttons.
A burial plot for the anguished.
This fur coat is nothing but class.
I `d say its a Redfox,
About 42 red fox to be exact.
Disposable lives feeding vain egoes.
126 trash animals dead too.
Leghold traps aren't choosey.
Discarded, their suffering irrevalent.
2,520 hours spent in traps.
So she can have a coat.
Look at her, will ya!!!
Standing there so proud.
Anyone got some spray paint??
I`d like to paint a picture.
