Animal Rights Poetry and Prose By Heidi Coon

Poems of compassion dedicated to the non-human animals who share this planet with us and the people who fight for them.

By Heidi Coon

Cultural conditioning

Agricultural sickening

Flesh eating

Guttural soliciting

Muscle masticating

Structural listening

Corpse chewing

Unnatural quickening


Unmoral without questioning

Children play in their own shit

They find nothing wrong with it

Disgust; it ain’t an instinct

…it’s fun to play in your own shit…

Aversion is learned


it varies by culture.

Question tradition!
