A Poem from Nicole Kuwik

TEN BILLION
by Nicole Kuwik

10 Billion farm animals will be
slaughtered next year,
and 60% of each body
will be buried in pits
in
Texas, Ohio, California

I grew up in the grass
in summertime Ohio,
a little girl blowing bubbles and skinning
knees, and all the while
calves were being blasted
‘tween the eyes with
buzzing
prods all across
the U.S.A.

In China, they use
organic waste to produce
energy, but there are many
problems, see,
the fat, see,
it leaves a layer
at the end of it all, and
bones, they just won’t
break
down.
