One cow is equal to one soul;

One soul is equal to one cow

We are all cows walking on the street,

All souls are cows the Namas said!


Kill one cow they will kill two souls,

Our grasses their cows graze on fearlessly.

Fearlessly they took our wells in their hand

Leaving our rivers bleeding helplessly here.


We are not Cows to be slaughtered here,

We have our rights in this Egg-ful world.

See us not as funeral cows who must take,

Obey any blow that comes to its body lines.


Until we confiscate the cargo ships

That cart away their senses to the Saharas

They will still see us as cows they can whip

And kill and no one would ask them why or how.


When will we stop rubbing the lazy palms

Honourably in the Mother land that kills us?

Have they ever seen us with grasses in our mouth?

Have they ever seen us defecating in an open place?


We don’t have four legs, horns, tail and big mouth!

Stop the act and see us not as once a brethren

Trying to steal some sinful glances at your

Tomatoes, groundnuts, wheat, and cucumber!


We are not cows to be slaughtered at will!

I know there has been a great deal said,

I know of a great deal of hope written

But let it also be told to them that we are not cows.

  1. The message is so simple. We are not cows to be slaughtered at all. Don’t give what you cannot take. You cannot give life, so don’t take. Avoid extremism in your religion now and always.
    Keep it up, JCV.

  2. It’s amazing to go to see this web site and
    reading the views of all mates on the topic of this piece of
    writing, while I am also keen of getting familiarity.
