An Ode to California Cows This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

A campaign plastered by
Dairy men of the land of milk and honey
Inform the unknowing consumers
On their content bovine breeds.

I have ventured to the land of milk and honey,
Steinbeck’s literary paradise,
And eyed the herds roaming the rolling hills.
I found that mid-coast California
Is most certainly a land the color of honey
Occupied by the forlorn bearers of milk.

To what a shock it was before my very eyes!
Talking cows have earned no merit;
They could not be “happy” with desiccated grass.
Surely they are lying not just to me
But to America nevertheless!
I had revoked my trust from their
Elaborate propaganda scheme.

Until…

I returned to the land of milk and honey
When the sun shied away in the Midwest.
Behold! A terrain overwhelmingly
Lush, fertile, and inhabited by
Those satisfied cows of yore –
Grazing polka dots over a sustaining green landscape.
