At The Butcher's Shop Poem by Green Peace

At The Butcher's Shop

Rating: 5.0

Was standing at the butcher's shop
Saw the butcher slaying the legs
Shrieks --- Blood --- Redness---
Anger --- Cruelty -- Death ---
Cold ---- Stiff --- Hostility ---

Washing -- Cleaning --- Sensitivity ----
My emotions overflowed
Felt numb of flesh, dumb of spirit
As if consuming ignorance
Passion --- Wrath --- Arrogance ----

Through one, many, all
Evolves collective apathy, enmity, revenge--
Why not efface them?
Never slain, never consume them
The lust, the greed, the crave that feeds on man.

Big fish eats small fish, an alligator eats all fish, rabbits are consumed by tigers. But human eats everything; if allowed even other human......good poem

This an excellent write, today in the developed world we are insulated from the slaughter of animals, meat prepacked in plastic trays, no thought of life thats taken. Most people insulated from life itself as well do not see the killing going on. Bob
