mink and sable

The semiaquatic mink 
Share a veiled bond with sable
Both furs adorn expensive coats 
With designer label
What a shame it is 
To raise animals for their hide
To satisfy our fashion sense 
Or keep us warm inside

    yes, the animal activists would love this one. I have never had a mink coat. I can't say I would give it back for being mink. It must feel divine, but sad that a defenseless animal had to die for our love of luxury. Good one.

    Yes... we do such terrible, terrible things... to animals... to nature... and, most insanely... to ourselves... Terry (Very good poem!)

    Oh, I agree, Jon. In our modern times, there's no reason to kill an animal for any reason. Great write! Hugs, Rhonda
