Walker for PETA

Alice Walker has written a poem in support of PETA‘s campaign against KFC. Sample lines:

“It is dark and hot; there is no fresh air. It stinks. As soon as you are born, part of your mouth, your tender beak, is burned off. This indescribable pain is your introduction to life. It will be a short life.”

The PETA release calls the poem “riveting.” I haven’t heard of poetry described that way, but maybe I’m reading the wrong stuff.
