A bucket of fried chicken for $9.99
Two triple cheeseburgers for $2.00
Mass slaughter is mechanicalized
Of course, chicken never consider
Themselves as chicken, and they
See themselves as primary being
My friend says: “You know in Europe
They build carbon dioxide gas chamber
That’s more humane, it’s painless.
And their livestock are free range
Fed organic, listen to Mozart and New Age.”
On their last day chicken listen to Beethoven.
It used to be a long and cruel process
for a family to make their decision
To kill one name, to end that biography.
