The Existence of Cacophony
by Daniel North
Submitted by the author

For far too long, for so many years

Animals have been treated as a factory commodity

Instead of considering that all living things are equal

And forcing them into an existence of grave cacophony.

Hemorrhaging the earthís agriculture

For fossil fuels and decimating the land

Whilst being led by the grains of ineffective practice

That bred the open sores on each hand.

Contaminating all the rivers and lakes

Floating nitrates flourish from the sewage plants

As a wave of dead fish flood over

The wall of murderous chants.

That brings on the diseases of affluence

Like the growing plague of avian bird flu

And destructive illnesses like BSE or CJD

That jeopardise the futures of me or you!

And itís just because of escalating greed

From ignorantly deviant commerce

That tamper with the hazardous risks

Instead of amending the dangers left unversed.

By still abusing the use of antibiotics

And carrying out derisory inspections

For far too long, for so many years

The dairy industry has lost all its connections.

With the animals and the principles of the world

To even care what might be unhealthy or tainted

By distancing themselves further and further away

From all the morals that need to be reinstated.
