A poem

You're leaving today, loaded & gone

In the back of a truck, the sound of a storm

From grass underfoot...to the horror beyond

We carry your pain, we sing your song

We know where you're going, we worry your fate

From birth to the stable, stable to plate

Hands that once brushed you, fed you and cared

Could they really have loved you, sweet gentle mare?

For there on the kill floor you birth a new life

Minutes from death seconds from...knife

Your friends huddle round to comfort your pain

One tiny babe, no mercy, no name

A mother so frightened, the end is begun

Her little one broken before he could run

Will he ever feel sunshine or hear a kind word?

Will he live before death, will his cry be heard?

We're here for you, fighting...we won't let you down

Each moment you suffer we stand our ground

For every lost soul the world sheds a tear

For young, fit or old, compassion is near

We speak for you plight, we sign for your freedom

Holding on tight for right and reason

An unbearable shame, an unbreakable vow

End slaughter for horses, stop killing, stop...NOW!
