|03:48 pm - Short Earth Mother Sacred Cow Hymn|
Due to a discussion on an ADF list, where someone asked why the Earth Mother was a "sacred cow" in ADF, I was inspired to write a short prayer. It became pretty popular all of a sudden, so I thought I'd post it here, too:
Earth mother, boundless and broad, supporting the heavens;I do kinda like it. It's kinda fun!
Yea, as a cow supports her horns, you support the mountains.
Earth mother, whose waters reflect the heavens and give us life;
Yea, as a cow whose udder is full, you suckle us as calves.
Earth mother, upon whom the fire of sacrifice is kindled;
Yea, as a cow is the best gift of a man, you support our generosity.
Earth mother, whose winds sing in mountains and forests;
Yea, as a cow lows at dawn, we sing praises to you.
A bit of much, much needed amusement in a helluvaday.

On a serious note, no, I know a simple chant won't do much... but just as it can reconnect us with the Earth Mother, it could make us think about where our food comes from.
Failing that, there's always the guns!
