Hannah the hen watches from above as her flesh is devoured by blunt omnivore teeth.
Her slow drowning in a chemical bath, full body plucking and eventual decapitation feels justified: her nutrients have been passed on to the more deserving.
Sally the cow has spent most of her adult life being milked. She's been cycled through pregnancies for years and is sick to death of having her male babies taken away from her and killed.
She wonders why humans even want her milk, which is full of hormones for baby cows and has traces of blood from her sore, overworked teats.
Help Sally spread her message!
Sally the cow is pregnant again. Her tenth child male child has been murdered in infancy and every day she prays that her next birth will be to a female.
A female, she reasons, will at least get to enjoy being alive for a short time before being fed into the same pregnancy/milking cycle Sally suffers through.
Elsewhere, beach-goers drip melting ice-cream onto the burning sidewalk. A child drops his cone and his father wipes his tears away with a napkin.
