Oklahoma - Poem by O Anna Niemus

That constant sound
beating in the hearts
of every human being
every bird trilling
every woodpecker quietly drilling
.the Om
in Oklahoma
The hearts of Oklahoma from
the poet Joy Harjo and the brilliant
attorney mystery writer William Bernhardt
to every soul driven to Oklahoma from
the Trail of Tears
is now melting the icebergs of hate
created by Senators Inhofe and Coburn,
two senators
who sponsored the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act
... which criminalizes peaceful protest

They represent the dragging foot of Oklahoma,
those unconscious souls who made the state
the last to ban cockfighting in the US

Why is Oklahoma a tornado state?
Because wherever animal slaughter is concentrated,
ecological disasters follow.
