Dog Fighting

The verity of your hilarity is lost when dogs fight in pits
Euthanize animals chewed to bits
By what method can we see with clarity
Our relationship with others’ pain and suffering is sick
When every Sunday we worship Michael Vick
Pro quarter back sublime
Who murdered dogs in their prime
Their only crime failure to exterminate an opponent
Is this the way we roll now
Dog and cock fighters take a bow
Your mothers must be so proud 
Neanderthal, civilized man
Who knows what side of the line each will stand
The dissolution of our race
Shown in the boy’s face
As he smiled with glee
At what happened to the puppy
The bait dog lay writhing, dying
