Bless The Beasts
In Canada they clubbed the seals.

a most brutal public kind of pain..

Boston queen of cruel labs
In Korea they ate the dogs..
while in France they de-legged frogs
and Manitoba murdered hogs

In New Zealand
froze sheep unfleeced.
In China for spare parts they farmed bears.
In New Jersey for pleasure they killed bears.
In Saskatchewan they made Mad Elk & Deer
by feeding to the living the parts of dead deer
Near the feedlots of Amarillo
They tried to hit the armadillo.
In Wisconsin they separate cow mothers
from their daughters, from their brothers.
In College Park for Frank Perdue

at the Detroit Zoo.
At the stampede in Calgary
they create for calves a Calvary.
Kentucky horses die in barn fires.
and break their legs in the mire.
Water skiers marauded nests of powerless
Careless walkers smashed the nests
of terns in grassbraid dunes.
Chanel for civet harmed the cat
but who is tortured more than rat?
Ermine tongues to greased
traps in Siberia froze.
In Italy calves made veal..
.. especially loved.. flesh of rose.
Oregon cuts 1000 year old trees
while smashing their squirrels birds and bees.
Many hate the gentle cockroach
and upon her life span they encroach
Said one 'I think they're coming
to feed us! '
'No by God! they're coming to eat us! '
Everywhere they're dismembered subdivided
drawn and quartered crucified.
This hell will end... heart by heart..
as each soul wills to do its part.
