Slaughterhouse Chaplain - Poem by Saiom Shriver
The military chaplain
left the world of captains
exchanging war slaughterhouses
for cow slaughterhouses.
He ensures company profitability
and employee stability
by telling people it's ok
to kill animals.
whether birds, cows, pigs
or other mammals.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
'Every week, Tyson's 54 chicken plants,13 cow slaughter plants, and six pig slaughter plants murder and package 42.5 million chickens, (22,050,000,000 billion a year) 170,000 cows, steers and bulls, (8640,000 million a year(and 347,891 pigs 18,044,000 mill a year. Their largest meat packing facility is their beef production plant in Dakota City, Nebraska. Other plants include feed mills, hatcheries, farms and tanneries.
Tyson's supplies all Yum! Brands chains that use chicken, including KFC and Taco Bell, as well as McDonald's, Burger King, Wendy's, Wal-Mart, Kroger, IGA, Beef O'Brady's, small restaurant businesses, and prisons.
In 2014,115,000 people, who work at more than 300 facilities,90 of which are in the US' These 3 paragraphs of quotes are from the Wikipedia link below.
Tyson's employs the poorest of the poor. There is high turnover because only psychopaths would enjoy the massacre. Because of the great stress to employees from the constant bloodletting and because of the negative publicity showing brutal slaughterhouse videos of their plant, Tyson's employs chaplains.
