10 Little Veal Calves
by WantNoMeat@aol.com 

10 little veal calves in a crate
1 broke loose and ran for the gate
9 little veal calves in a crate
1 broke his neck when he slipped on his slate
8 little veal calves in a crate
1 got dehydrated and lost too much weight
7 little veal calves in a crate
1 died from diseases caught too late
6 little veal calves in a crate
1 died in an anemic state
5 little veal calves in a crate
1 died too thin and got low rate
4 little veal calves in a crate
1 more died of neglect, of hate
3 little veal calves in a crate
1 grew fast and got shipped out of state
2 little veal calves in a crate
1 more approaching slaughter date
1 little veal calf in a crate
1 went to slaughter in a freight
0 little veal calves in a crate
10 little veal calves on a plate
