​If I could stop you I would

If I could stop you I would

If I could stop you I would

Illustrate your evils,

your works and bad deeds.

Stand up tall, eye to eye

Sacrifice all, be willing to die

If I could stop you I would

 

If I could stop you I would

 

If I could stop you I would

Shout and scream

Riot in the streets

Rally my people to a war-cry

For your defeat

If I could stop you I would

 

If I could stop you I would

 

If I could stop you I would

Clear away the fog of your lies

Bring down your tower,

Stop Fascism’s reprise.

If I could stop you I would

 

If I could stop you I would

 

If I could stop you I would

Use words as my shield,

Sonnet as my spear,

Create works of protest,

That make you cower in fear.

If I could stop you I would

 

If I could stop you I would

 

If I could stop you I would

Raise an army of poets,

Painters, and musicians

We’d write songs, tell stories,

Paint scenes foretelling your fall.

If I could stop you I would

 

If I could stop you I would

 

If I could stop you I would

Protect what is sacred.

Bring about a renaissance of change

End the racism, hatred,

The violence committed in your name.

If I could stop you I would

 

If I could stop you I would

Gestation

Pig (Sow) confined in an abusive gestation crate.
Pig (Sow) confined in an abusive gestation crate.

Look beyond the bars of my six by two world.

See me as a mother, a daughter, a girl.

Pregnant, imprisoned, unable to move;

Terror growing faster than the litter in my womb.

I will carry my young three months, three weeks, and three days;

I’ll never see my children, or life, outside of a cage.

My babies were bred to suffer horrifying fates.

So that heartless people will have unneeded bacon on their plates.

A victim of gluttony; this is my life, my misery, my sorrow.

This vicious industry will impregnate me again tomorrow. 

Unjustified

cow waiting to die
Go vegan, for your health, the environment and the animals.

Look me in the eyes and tell me I’m yours;

Your property, your pleasure, your victim forever. 

Can you justify the actions you take?

The exploitation and murder? The pollution you make?

Birthed for profit, torment, anguish and fear;

My brethren are slaughtered by the billions each year.

Look me in the eyes and tell me why I have this tag in my ear.
