And Which Is Milked - Poem by James McLain
And which is milked?
Each cow has its own qualities
health and; emotion,
however milk of which we drink
is freely mixed of all the cows
with the farm.
Ayurvedically, this milk is already tamasic
and nondigestible, implying confusion,
the lethargy, fear and anger.
Surely a cow which lives in constant fear,
the fear of its life and the deprivation of its calf,
will carry emotions such as anger,
insult, fear and hatred.
These are then the emotions that we digest
when we drink of this milk.
Knowing not the hand nor the cow nor the farm;
Is calf to blame......
