the player takes
his position in the outfield
a cricket's cry

I screwed up the punctuation in Sunnyside Troll's poem, "Chicken in a Cage". Therefore, I am going to post it again. This time though, I'll add a youtube video at the end of it to show viewers what the debeaking process on a factory farm looks like.

Chicken in a Cage

I - 'm inside.
N - o room.
S - uffering with
A - ss wounds,
N - o beak.
I - nhumane torture
T - raumatizes me.
Y - are you doing this?

if you'd like to watch the video in the previous post, then just click on "You Tube" in the olive green rectangle above the video.

Correction: the haiku in the previous post should read...

starling multitude
murmurates ---
I'm mesmerized

(Sorry 'bout that!)

It's still not quite right, in my opinion. Anyway, here's a better version, I think:

starling multitude
murmurates ---
I get mesmerized

(Sorry for being so fussy. I would have preferred to have just edited my original post, but after a certain amount of time has elapsed, I guess you can't do that anymore.)
