The Image is an AI Image By Me,And I Know Everything is Wrong Here - Just Like The Grand National.

The Grand National is a disgusting event. Too many horses in a race that results in many horses being put down after each race. This is not a race it is a mass execution.

The only reason this is there is to make money.

Execution Of Horses

Coming To Fences And Ditches

Like They Are Chased By Devils, Whipped By Jockeys

Impelled to Jump And Run

Punters Put On Their Bets

So Bookies Can Make Their Fortunes In This

    This is extremely devastating 😭😭😭

    Excellent acrostic. Heart-wrenching and disgusting practice, and like Mariann said, so glad you're raising awareness. Somehow the sliced and diced nature of the AI is apt. Hurts my heart and head, but it's supposed to. FYI, minor typo in line "Like They Are Chsed" (sic).

    This is so sad. I am glad you are raising awareness through poetry
