Cows with Guns

Fat and docile, big and dumb
They look so stupid, they aren’t much fun

Cows aren’t fun

They eat to grow, grow to die
Die to be et at the hamburger fry

Cows well done

Nobody thunk it, nobody knew
No one imagined the great cow guru

Cows are one

He hid in the forest, read books with great zeal
He loved Che Guevera, a revolutionary veal

Cow Se Tongue

He spoke about justice, but nobody stirred
He felt like an outcast, alone in the herd

Cow doldrums

He mooed we must fight, escape or we’ll die
Cows gathered around, cause the steaks were so high

Bad cow pun

But then he was captured, stuffed into a crate
Loaded onto a truck, where he rode to his fate

Cows are bummed

He was a scrawny calf, who looked rather woozy
No one suspected he was packing an Uzi

Cows with guns

They came with a needle to stick in his thigh
He kicked for the groin, he pissed in their eye

Cow well hung

Knocked over a tractor and ran for the door
Six gallons of gas flowed out on the floor

Run cows run!

He picked up a bullhorn and jumped up on the hay
We are free roving bovines, we run free today
We will fight for bovine freedom
And hold our large heads high
We will run free with the Buffalo, or die

Cows with guns

They crashed the gate in a great stampede
Tipped over a milk truck, torched all the feed

Cows have fun

Sixty police cars were piled in a heap
Covered in cow pies, covered up deep

Much cow dung

Black smoke rising, darkening the day
Twelve burning McDonalds, have it your way
The President said “enough is enough
These uppity cattle, its time to get tough”

Cow dung flung

The newspapers gloated, folks sighed with relief
Tomorrow at noon, they would all be ground beef

Cows on buns

The cows were surrounded, they waited and prayed
They mooed their last moos,
they chewed their last hay

Cows outgunned

The order was given to turn cows to whoppers
Enforced by the might of ten thousand coppers
But on the horizon surrounding the shoppers
Came the deafening roar of chickens in choppers

    As we gaze up to heaven we realize that stars do not make the light, the light makes the stars.  Thank you for sharing your beautiful light with me.
