Note, the following is an updated version of the original.
There is a neighborhood east of downtown Louisville, Kentucky, whose residents proudly refer to as Butchertown.
Blood flows rivers in Butchertown.
The stench of death fills the air.
An invisible breath of terror shudders the spirit of any sensitive soul who happens by the namesake. A place where walls deflect horrific cries of fear while veiling horrors that would wrench the gut of even the sternest of all men. And yet, and even so, the folks of Butchertown are devotedly proud of their neighborhood.
They murder pigs in Butchertown, by the tractor-trailer loads.
And no one from Butchertown gives it a moment’s care, except for the foul odor of death that disturbs their quaint old neighborhood.
There is two class of victims in Butchertown; those who work this horrid industry and of course, the pigs who surely must wonder why their sentence in life is so incredibly brutal. To whom have they done injustice to demand such harsh punishment? Surely, these thoughts must run through their intelligent and sensitive minds.
Oh yes, there is a third class of victim, the mistreated spouses, and the abused children and the victims of violent crime perpetrated by those who work this horrid industry. I don’t know if the criminal elements are attracted these ghastly positions of employ, or if they become hideous due these occupations. Nor, do I care. The point is one of cruelty created by supply and demand. Where the ramifications are manifold but rarely suspect, yet produce an endless stream of victims.
Although the human suffering cannot equate in volume to the millions of physically, sexually, mentally abused and brutally murdered pigs. And without so much as, “Who gives a fuck?”
But it is the pigs I give a fuck about, few else ever will.
Few see any significance to pigs beyond the satisfaction of their gluttonous appetite. And it is Butchertown that caterers to their morbid craving.
