Not on the menu,
she stands alone in protest —
a wooden turkey.
February might seem a strange time to write a protest haiku about turkey welfare, but Christmas and Thanksgiving aren’t the only times people eat the meat from these birds. As I post this haiku, there are billions of turkeys undergoing the torture of factory farming. This happens 365 days a year.
Below are some links to “Compassion in World Farming” and “mscpa angell” — organisations which expose the horrors of this industry and look at ways to improve animal welfare.
