Silent Stars

Tree choppers send
caterpillars live
through a chipper.
Long lines fishing boats
cut off dolphin flippers.
Mowers shred the fabric
of blooming ladies' slippers.
Sheep freeze when too soon
the fleece removed by clippers.
Jockeys who bet on races
more likely horse whippers.
Whales killed by pollution,
sonar, and shippers.
For cinnamon some kill
the plant as barkstrippers
Sturgeon cut open for
by modern fishermen rippers
who don't care that
the sturgeon have no zipper.
For topiary, plants
mutilated by
gardening snippers.
All of this happening
beneath the Big Dipper
