They’ve hooked up machines
To the cows in the stall;
Gonna drain ‘em of milk
And to market will haul.

Poured into cauldrons
Then heated and stirred
To purify contents
From many great herds.

Then packaged and shipped
To the markets to sell
In plastic and paper
To homes where we dwell.

An homogenized yield
From beginning to end,
From mammal to mammal
The cow’s special blend.

The cows give their lives
’Til their lives are all spent;
Like the citizens used
By their own government.
