‘to The Slaughter-House’- A Cattle-Song!

Rating: 3.5

To the slaughter-house! To the slaughter-house!
Here we cows all go;
We gave men milk and butter, ghee;
They want our beef now;
We’ve no other go.

To the slaughter-house! To the slaughter-house!
Here we oxen go;
We tilled their lands and milled oil-seeds;
They want our hide now;

We’ve no other go.

'To the slaughter-house! To the slaughter-house! Here we animals go; Jostled, huddled, unfed, crowded; Men want our lives now; This is our last ride, we all know; We’ve no other go.' Marvelous.....10+
