I wish I were artistic...More Like This
I wish I could write like 'mod' artists do
stories about ladies on benches
and people walking their dogs on a Sunday afternoon.
Sitting in Starbucks, with a whaddya call it latte
with more sugar than coffee
and wearing my soul on my sleeve.
I wish I could paint pictures of trees
in colours they don't naturally have
and tell people it is truth.
Sitting in a park
painting the dogs and their owners into beings that aren't real.
Listening to Feist.
I wish I could draw a person
Not a character, but a real live person
one that would go up to me in Starbucks and ask what I was having.

I notice we have similar features.
They feel love, fear and pain.
My tears for them they flow like rain.
No one can tell me that a mother
Doesn't cry when she loses her baby...
be her cow or other...
Just so humans can drink from her
The milk intended for her baby, so pure
The innocent child taken away:
If female, will suffer the same fate someday.
If male will be raised to be turned to veal.
The dairy industry wishes to conceal,
That each sip you take that adds too their strife,
