Poem Dedicated To The Vast Transnational Medico-Pharmaceutical Industry - Poem by Anthony Weir

Through language we lose
our innocence,
our animal integrity.
Through knowledge
we become ever madder and rougher,
unworthy to kiss the quiet
intestines of quadrupeds.

After Descartes
'scientists' nailed dogs to walls
'to show that beasts could not suffer'.
