Ha.. I bet that the cows don't forget. They know what it means to be prey.
Cows being out in the wild have natural instincts which help them survive. Well penned!Lots of love,Sanaa
Another great one!! Hooray for the cows!! I'll definitely be a vegetarian today!!
It's good that they give us peacefulness alive and sustenance when they are not.
oh, gulp! Indeed sometimes I would prefer NOT to be a carnivore.
What better way to eat them than to first walk among them and befriend them?
Hello Ms. Zen,Out in the cows is where I often was while growing up. But I never forgot I was a carnivore, or more truthfully, didn't think of them in that regard. They are docile creatures with their big "cow eyes", staring without seeing, but there is no more peaceful scene than cows on pasture. Thanks for taking me home.
This actually cracked me up. This is the dichotomy and it bothers me greatly - how much I love animals and the fact that, rarely but occasionally, I do still eat them. Oy. It gets harder with every month.
I read a line in a book the other day about vampires that seem to fit here - they like calm and stability because wolves won't hunt in a burning forest. So they are calm and grazing and we....hunt. Funny poem, funny in the good sense. but oh! the other feelings it brings to mind that are not funny. Excellent way to make a point.
I echo Bjorn ... the cows probably sense it though!
Hahaha! Look into those soulful brown eyes. I always thought they held both love and pity. (But, really--all life forms must eat. 'Course, humans tend not to eat carnivores.)
Said the killer poet to the sleepy locals.
This poem puts me in a pensive mooooood. (Hey, Shay stole my comment idea. ;)

they say cow methane is one of the biggest contributors to global warming. so, who's killing whom? ~
Ha, well said! I too love the placidity and lady-like gathering of cows staring at me with interest (and just a hint of boredom, to put things into perspective). Witty and charming!
I wonder how the cows feel when they are out with the humans.
