Every Chicken, Cow, Fish, and Frog: Animal rights haiku anthology

Hi, everyone,

I’d like to tell you about a new haiku anthology, all on the theme of animal rights. It’s called Every Chicken, Cow, Fish and Frog: Animal Rights Haiku, edited by Robert Epstein and Miriam Wald.

Here are the opening sentences of the description.

All life is precious; thus proclaimed Albert Schweitzer, the 20th century humanitarian. Yet, humans around the globe continue to daily mistreat and murder countless numbers of animals, fish, fowl and insects with reckless abandon. This must come to an end. Collectively, the contributors in this anthology, from Croatia to Indonesia, speak out poetically and passionately on behalf of ending nonhuman suffering.

This collection contains dozens of haiku, including many from well-known and widely-published writers of haiku in English. I have two poems in it as well. I’m excited about this new book, both as a strongly-argued call for social change and as an insightful work of poetry. I encourage you to give it a try.
