Watching Them

We watch them in grasses

Grazing to their full

and staring curiously

Little knowing the intentions

The next day – they are in our dining tables

in varying forms and sizes

 

We watch them in media

Call them ‘endangered species’

while wearing their skin

as a deterrent against cold

and an object of fancy

 

We watch them in the forest

Marvel at their ferocity

Hiding in a safe place

The next day –

the trophies of our ‘bravery’

hang in our walls

 

Just think for a moment

of the dying animal

Liken their blood with yours

Look into their eyes,

think of your loved ones

and we will never do that again
