Sacred Cows

Here on Earth, this big blue marble,
happy cows have names,
and graze on remote farmlands
in organic valleys.
They are not suffering
confined to filthy barns
not shaken by rugged hormones,
not felled by fierce antibiotics.

Contented cows live in splendor,
like warriors,
off of concrete, out in pasture.

The silence of the grass
is both grace and blessing
for healthy cows
creating
their milk of human kindness.
