Clint Eastwood


He is a hero to
animals in East Woods
and West Woods
North Woods
and South Woods.

While horses are still
killed in Spanish and Mexican
bullfights, in Calgary
Stampede rodeos,
in Kentucky barn fires
and New Jersey horseracing
accidents, slaughtered in
Japanese, French and other
horse slaughterhouses,
the tripwiring of movie
horses in the US
is now a rare thing
because of him.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Many horses have broken their necks or legs or lost their lives as wires were stretched across paths to make them fall for 'realistic' battle or chase scenes. Tripwiring still occurs in many countries.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
