Chicken Karma

Written in 04 when there was a chicken flue scare...Peter

Chicken Karma.

Chickens fighting back with Karma
Coming down with chicken flue.
People watching all those years now
{people being me and you}
Watching all those cruel fellows
I'm the same I watched it too.

Creatures kept in little cages
Beaks cut off to make them meek.
Never seeing sunny weather
No room to move, of this I speak!!
And now us folk be getting worried
That chicken flue our deaths will seek.

Well I be saying "ain't my fault"
But me, I've ate that chicken too.
And I knew what folk were doing
I'd seen the cruel things they do
And now that karma's getting closer
Will the world go down with chicken flu?.

Dec 30 2004.

    Cute one..Peter, if I thought about it I could not eat any meat...I would have to be a vegetarian which would probably be better for me anyway..Thanks for the visit to my pages..I wonder does that virus that comes from the birds or pigs make the them sick?..I need to look that up..Sara

    I wish I could be a vegetarian, I have been trying for fifty years now, but the meat eating urge always comes back I really abhor the way us so called humane species treat the animals, thanks for your comments Sara...Peter

    I looked it up and it doesn't seem to make wild shore birds sick but will make domesticated animals sick and of course, humans..Sara
