Cow Slaughter
by Prafulla Sahu
Bookmark and Share
  Last year I knew
The cow's omnivorous,
Not herbivorous
It can eat yolk split pinned paper.
This year I learn
It's vicious, no more sanctimonious
Stretching its nuzzle
It loves to pry open your basket
To enjoy a booty of vegetables
Next year I may see cow milking wine.
Canine cows
Spreading traffic-rabies;
Who bit them?
Who made them so scrawny?
Who you ask?
They say ‘We aren’t real butchers’
They rally and shout ‘Ban cow slaughter!’

Comment Interesting! Yes I buy your idea that man is pushing animals to adapt for a survival, in its attempt to transform the nature to accomodate human demands. Nice with its political under tone and social sarcasm.
