The Plastic Igloos of Avarice
By Daniel North
Submitted by the author

What is happening to our planet?

Why can't we to just learn care

for our animals instead of causing them harm?

Milking cows only if they can make a profit

and then throwing them on a rotting pile

behind the dairy farm.

Disregarding thousands so heartlessly

do the animals have any say in this?

As it’s not like they can say “No!” or “Please”

when their calves are quickly taken away

into the plastic igloos of avarice

or when female’s are so heavily birthed

That they can no longer use their knees.

And what do they know?

Man is too blinded with money

to even know how they might feel

being left dehydrated and anaemic

in a life so unnatural,

so degrading

when being slaughtered for their veal.

But we all can make a difference

By not buying their produce

and begin to use dairy alternative.

So that the law changes

and starts to realise

it’s cruelty like this

that should no longer live.
