Man Against Nature, 2008
They want to euthanize the wild horses that live in the West,
Don’t they recall that we rode in on one?
They say the herds are too big, so we think it best
What else will they destroy before it’s over and done?
Will they sell prime grade A horsemeat in the stores,
Right on aisle three beside the stacks of canned dolphin?
Will they decide that pets are a nuisance, a real eyesore,
And start selling their flesh packaged in flashy tins?
Will they raze Mt. Rushmore to drill for oil along with the shore,
Cut down all the forests for shopping centers?
Until nothing survives that shows how we were before
Back in the days when we the people were just beginners?
Better save your pictures that you take of sights:
They might just not be there one of these nights…
