You see it don’t you
How we use symbols
How we make messages
To reach the heart and mind?
This message is the word of peace
A single word in the ear of another
To reach the ears of the many
But is the cow embodying it safe?
Or is it a problem, the ‘sacred cow’
One that we act out, that is now habit
A habit of origins now unknown
But faithfully we continue to re – enact
Peace is so valuable and so lost to many
It is even now camouflaged by a colourful display
Maybe the secretive inclusion will work magic
People will listen with their ears to its plea
