Bob Comis' Last Pig - Poem by Saiom Shriver
It bothered him
more and more
as he killed
two thousand pigs.
Now he grows
perhaps some day..
trees of fig
Poet's Notes about The Poem
From the Times Union:
'Bob Comis sent more than 2,000 pigs to slaughter in 10 years as a pig farmer. He made a comfortable living and became a close observer of pig behavior. He grew increasingly disillusioned with the work and the suffering of the intelligent, sociable animals who followed him around and nuzzled at his jeans. He liked being around the pigs and gave many of them names, but eventually reached a tipping point where he could no longer defend the ethical implications of the slaughterhouse.'
