The American Way of Life

Eighteen Bengal tigers
(an extremely threatened species)
who were let out by a loony
who owned a "wild-life" park
were shot in Ohio yesterday
because Americans like to kill
first and answer questions later.

America also has twice the rate of child abuse
(physical, sexual and emotional) of the runner-up
country, and of all the states it is no surprise
to learn that annexed Texas is the worst.

Americans think it's funky
to maim and kill - and so
I needn't mention all the other escaped animals
from emaciated lions to a little lonely monkey.


(PS The loony shot himself -
a not-uncommon American Way of Dying.)
