Animal Rights Poetry and Prose By Heidi Coon

Poems of compassion dedicated to the non-human animals who share this planet with us and the people who fight for them.

By Heidi Coon

Thanksgiving is traditional

Not to mention cultural

A big dead bird on the dining table
�is it ethical?
Certainly, you can�t call it moral?
Traditions ain�t mandate to follow
Pull your collective heads outta your asses
Break free from the pattern of the masses
Take off your blinders disguised as rose-tinted glasses
It�s time you stop lining the pockets of assassins
Y�all can keep your family gatherings�
You just need alternative offerings
�cos the whole giving thanks by causing suffering�?
Certainly ain�t �peace� you�re fostering
Plates can be filled without turkey blood splattering
