International Respect for Chickens Day – 4 May 2009

Here’s what I wrote for today:

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!

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
