    Amphibians toss
    in toxic
    shallows
    laconic and
    listless
    daily diet;
    arsenic
    mercury
    ammonia oxide
    can't eat
    or
    multiply
    ...ONLY
    suffer
    and
    die.

    Elk crashing
    through
    mountain thicket
    eyes W I D E
    bleeding from
    the chest
    and the
    right thigh
    smell of
    MAN
    close-by
    vision growing
    dim
    footsteps & laughter
    approaching
    gun-barrel
    smoking...
    He dies
    in a bloody S N O R T
    proud points
    on a
    wall
    for the
    sake of


    SPORT.

    Baby seal
    struggling
    sliding
    over
    brain covered
    bloody beach
    white fur
    RED
    soon to
    be DEAD
    for the
    GREEN concerns
    of his
    assasins...
    many die screaming
    H I G H - P I T C H E D
    2 closed eyes;
    sounds like
    human babies
    dying
    from
    clubs held
    in
    tight-F I S T S .

    All over the
    globe
    we
    rove
    like bands
    of
    DEMONS
    dishing out death
    wholesale
    to
    Nature
    and of-course
    ...each other
    SOON
    we will
    discover
    we slaughtered
    all of
    the meat
    and destroyed
    all means
    to produce
    grains
    and vegetables...

    ...then we'll
    TRULY
    see...
    what
    it
    means

    to
    be


    cannibals.

    Bon Appetit

    Highly explosive (mind blowing) reality in this piece, brotha! Unfortunately, we don't treat these issues enough in our work...but it doesn't lessen the detrimental affects these 'sports' have on our environment.

    Thank you for your range of vision/motion and the excellent way you bring it...at all times.

    More, please!

    So'Ja- my Bro. you point out a sad fact of reality... "cash rules"
    and the "NEW Bush" administration has taken an aggressive stand "against" environmental protection...so as rulers of the "food chain" enventually we will pay for our greed and disrespect for our planet and its animal life...So'Ja I value your critique's ..always...One !

    GA- I am only sorry I havent had time to check yours and everyone else's flows lately..but I have some time today...gonna give back to these rooms by droppin in on everyones pieces...as many as time will allow I should say...thanks GA for your read and words of encouragement...much Love to you...Peace.

    ~A- your words let me know I am on the right track in my attempt to become a more versatile writer....especially from one who drops such unique pieces as yourself...thanks for your valued critique....Peace !
