The Price of Milk
By Heidi Stephenson

Dairy, dairy, quite contrary,
how can your brothers grow?
Now piercing yells in terror hells,
and bleeding babes all in a row!

Dairy, dairy, so contrary,
treating young friends, like a foe?
With killing fells, for dainty sells,
and crying calves laid low?

Dairy, dairy, beyond contrary,
how would we each like to go?
With eyes like wells, as murder quells,
in agony, blow on blow?
