Defeated Bull

You seeing me running

through freshly laid sand


If you look closely,

If you choose to look closely,

You will see the pain in my eyes

But you don't, you never will

So here i am,

for twenty minutes

I am the centre of attention

but in the end i know i will be laying

defeated, unjustified

But hey, I am just a bull

lanced, bleeding

what can i do when ignorance is so powerful?

I will play my role

running towards the muleta

because after all, this was all i was born for

to be part of a story


But, thats not the way i see it

weakened, i am practically powerless

Ole! Ole!

The sound of a happy crowd

At least when i lay on the butchers table

about to take my last breath,

I will be free

Interesting lookout, from the bull's point of view,I hate cruelty to animals and I think bullfighting, dog fights, cock fights, et al, should be more enforced and those who indulge in such attrocities, should be imprisoned for a long time. Nicely done, Leah.
