They're not vermin but rats and mice
They're animals' ground up bones not mad cow marshmallows.
They're not anglers but stranglers
They're animals' ground up fat, not beef tallow.
Pigs don't live in sties. They live in homes they make... when they are free.
It's not feed they eat. It's food, though it often contains
the rotting parts of Mad Pigs and Mad Cows
It's not a lion's lair. It's his home.
It's not a fox's den. It's his home.
It's not an eagle's aerie. It's his home.
They're not meat... but the victims of serial killers.
He's not venison but a murdered deer
She's not caviar but a ripped up sturgeon
She's not leather but skin ripped off a cow
She's not a broiler but an innocent nonverbal chicken.
He's not jerky but a slaughtered skinned turkey.
He's not got Chronic Wasting Disease but Mad Deer, cervine spongiform
encephalopathy
She the chicken doesn't have leukosis, but leukemia, a disease
transmissible by eating her corpse.
It's not Avian Flu or West Nile Virus but Mad Bird, avian spongiform encephalopathy
They're not ecoli but colon bacteria multiplying in a dead animal's
intestines.
They're not 'it' but 'he or she'
They're not 'head' but cows.
They're not hunters but stalkers or ambushers.
It's not a pod of whales or a school of fish or a pack of dogs
or a flock of birds... it's communities of living beings.
