Wear & Tear
By Daniel North
Submitted by the author - 20 Oct 2005

We can erase this fake elegance
In which the media constantly glamorize
But sometimes itís too hard to compose
As in these lines, faces appear and traumatize.

Of millions of fur bearing animals
Like foxes, raccoons, minks and bobcats
Are being brutally drowned, strangled
Left in traps and bludgeoned with bats.

But what if the tables were turned
Would they still parade and gloat?
Knowing that every cell has a memory
When the knife slices into their throat.

Just so that they can shield
The gain seen in their precious pelt
But with such good imitations on the market
We need to be thinking more in how they felt.

Instead of the innocent being poisoned
Biting themselves out of a bottomless despair
Because they are ignorant to comprehend
That itís theirs! It was never ours to wear.
