Chickens
By Mary T. Hoffman

(Written for International Respect for Chickens Day – 4 May 2009)

Have you noticed how chickens are maligned
By those who are spiritually blind?
Sociopaths with low self-worth
Use God’s creatures in twisted “mirth.”

The time draws near when those who treat
Our feathered friends as food to eat
Will suffer from widespread disease –
A plague will bring them to their knees.

It’s later than most people think;
We hover on the very brink.
For cruelty, results accrue
And payments are long overdue.
Pandemics are a given
Unless the world goes Vegan!
