Cow Tipping

The ASPCA can’t see
what happens at night
to Holsteins asleep
but still standing.

PETA does not approve
pushing Golden Guernsey’s
who dream of July dancing
light-footed in the wheat.

4-H won’t condone
hormone-amped teens
who shove sleeping Brown Swiss,
to make them tip over

where they wake up on the ground
bellowing their remorse
for sweet sleep interrupted
and their dancing dreams, of course.
