The Power, The Flurry, The Feathers

Have you gone to a cockfight? Have you seen the speed and aggression of a rooster? Do you know the efficiency of the kill? I do.

It’s fast, less than a minute often, and it’s furious, with slashing quick and sharp. It’s also all men, as far as I could tell. Men handling the birds, men betting in the audience, men and men only. Men watching the birds.

Before the match, getting mad, during, getting even, and after, getting fixed or fixing to be eaten.

Cockfighting – you should se it.

    I have seen a cock-fight before… I personally believe that cock-fighting should be banned. I’m not an animal activist but anyone can immediately see that this is bloody, viscous and unnecessary.

    I haven’t been to a cockfight, but our former landlord breeds these coc–erm, roosters. I’ve half a mind to steal one and sell it. I hear they go as much as 50K!
