Advisers, confidants, close friends, hear my beckoning. So betrothed to the game i'm wondering if you ears are turned red from my constant berating of facts and formula from my phone, from my bed. From a far away place, listing all the times I've spit last week they're all-seeing bloodhounds trapping me in beloved rat race
..."To Jimmy Turner, Kathy Lintz and Peter Bensinger, advisers, confidants and close friends, thank you." - an excerpt from Ryne Sandberg's induction to the hall of fame
We fed ice cream to the rats, dripping with sin, as we rode cyclops scorpions made of raccoon bones. I remember how controversial the chorus was, under that otherworldly echo coming from the scorching sun.
We were postulated seven souls at the naming ceremony that day. A narcissistic determination gifted to us by the hypochondriac shaman from the Church of the Cosmic Skull. Their god's favorite customer.
At twice five hundred beats of a bluebird's heart, the rhythm of the drums nearly drove us mad!
Energy, power, and light danced over us in the sky. Like guardian angels with luminous wings, residing in the land of the living- as well as the dead. Little did we know, the rats were their pets and... so were we.
Animals have suffered more from negative language stereotyping than all the others, and demeans them so constantly that they created an environment that allows all sorts of cruelties, many too horrendous to describe! An animal is 'it' instead of 'he' or 'she', this perpetuates our view of them as 'things' rather than individuals and is a major first step towards cutting them up for meat and leather, testing drugs/cosmetics/ household products on their bodies, and tearing off their coats for furs!!! Those who have pets are referred to as 'owners' rather than guardians/care givers/companions, reinforcing the idea that they are property much as slaves were considered property. ***** rat Filthy pig Acting like an *** ***** dog She's a ***** **** duckling There's more than one way to skin a cat Behaving like an animal Making a monkey out of someone Killing 2 birds with one stone Working like a horse You're chicken There are many more! Please think before uttering them and tell others.
This is not really a poem,but I can tell you that there are many stereotypes for animals,and none have any facts behind them.
