TURKEY RIGHTS POEMS

DEPRAVITY

Is stuffing a corpse's
cavity
a form of unnoticed
depravity?
or eating body parts
they call gizzards
or eating the flesh
of captured lizards?
or eating 'giblets'
which are turkey guts
.. they think them pure
if garnished with nuts

CORNUCOPIA

Why is there no
dead turkey displayed
in cornucopia art?

WHY?

Why do men cut
off turkeys' feet
before their heads?
Do they not mind
the watching eyes?

THIS AMERICAN LIFE COVERAGE OF TURKEY FARMS AND SLAUGHTERHOUSES

When a storm comes.. they
climb on each other in fright.
and the ones on the bottom
suffocate.
In some factory farms
the fans are unprotected
and the turkeys fly into
them, shredding themselves.
In the slaughterhouse in which
30,000 birds a day are murdered
some have the job of
livehanging (hanging the
terrorized birds upside down.)
After the electric cutting
of the jugular comes
the scalder.. and the
blood room, then 6 picking
machines which literally
beat the feathers off the birds
.. then the feet are cutoff..
then to the eviscerating room
where the guts are pulled out..
next the heads are pulled off
.. followed by machines
vacuuming out the lungs
.. finally the packaging,
the stapling and
posting the weight stickers
(and then the blood
and urine go into the streams..
along with the female hormones
antibiotics and in some cases
prions they contain..
while the lungs, guts,
heads, and feet go into
pet food and in some cases
become Mad Cow generating
illegal food for cows, sheep
pigs turkeys chickens fishes)

HE PRAYED FOR THE NAMELESS BIRD SITTING AT HIS TABLE

He sat at a table which had a decapitated gutted
defeathered cadaver of an innocent turkey, and wondered what his or
her name was..where he was from..
whom and what he loved? God bless the soul of the bird.. not only now
but going back in time to his concentration camp life and
his final awful embodied moments..

ARTICHOKE

They did the little
boy turkey named Art... choke
and then served his dead
body with artichokes


VIOLINS FROM THE VIOLENT TO THEIR VICTIMS

Some British farmers are playing
music to turkeys in factory
farms and at the slaughterhouses..
copying the Gestapo who played
classics as their victims
were prepared for the gas chambers..
were the turkey's leg bones
renamed drumsticks.. beating the time?
Did they render asunder
the 'wish' bones of his breast

THE DIFFERENCE AN S MAKES

Love turkeys
Love turkey
the former means protect them
the latter: turkey
the name of an objectifier
for a carcass cooked in fire

GENESIS FOOD

Pumpkin and pecan pies
peach and papaya pies
And sufficiently pied,
the piper can play.
(pecan trees grow in peace
on George Bush's ranch.
May he today extend the peace
of these trees to the entire world.)



WINDED WINGS?

When their wings
are ripped
off and eaten
can the birds fly?

WORLD PEACE

Does world peace begin
with our forks?

TURKEY RIGHTS

Turkeys give
thanks to vegetarians

COSMIC UMPIRE, COME

No matter what
torture is down
to the fowl
few human umpires
have ever called
foul.

LOVE BIRDS

They sang this
song.. the pair of lovebirds
.. eat no being
.. protect and love birds
In some factory farms
the turkeys are frightened
by fans.. and fly into them
.. shredding themselves.

TURKEY TURNKEY

The year she could
no longer eat a turkey
became for her
soul.. an amazing turnkey

NO FAX
She no longer posts
the numbers of fax
She wants no hand
on the treekillers' ax


THOSE WHO HAVE A NONVIOLENT THANKSGIVING
1 . avoid the uric acid or pre urine (trioxypurine) in animal
flesh which is correlated to arthritis. Celebrex makers
do not tell us that trioxypurine crystals are needle
like and gather around the joints. http://www.pcrm.org...­
2. avoid ecoli http://www.meatout.co...­
3. avoid salmonella http://www.meatstinks...­
4. avoid female hormones given birds.. which are correlated
to prostate, breast, uterine and other cancers
http://www.upc-online...­
5. avoid the unnatural heart excitation caused by adrenalin
(terror and anger hormones) secreted by birds before and during
slaughter.
6. Avoid the anger from meat ingestion. Some of the adrenalin protein
enzyme chain is destroyed by cooking, but enough links remain intact
to recreate biochemical stress.
http://www.egroups.co...­
7. avoid the bad karma of causing suffering to innocents
http://www.eggcruelty...­
8. Save energy A pound of meat takes 81 times the production
energy of a pound of fruit.. found Dr D Meyer.
http://www.sierraclub...­
9. Enable efficient systems. Animal flesh yields100 to 1000 lbs an
acre, while fruit yields 250,000 to 456,000 per acre.

10. Prevent choking. Meat is the 6th major cause of accidental death.
***
***
ConAgra one of the biggest food conglomerates in the world
slaughters 'butterball' turkeys, bred so topheavy
they cannot stand. Butterball headquartered in Downers' Grove
Illinois. A downer is an animal so sick she cannot stand
as she arrives at the slaughterhouse.
And Martin Sheen calling the hot line for the turkey
slaughterhouse gives new meaning to West Wing, made by
GE war profiteers.
