 On the 12th day of the Eurocentrically imposed midwinter festival,
 my potential-aquaintence-rape-survivor gave to me,
 TWELVE males reclaiming their inner warrior through ritual drumming.
 ELEVEN pipers piping (plus the 18-member pit orchestra made up of
 members in good standing of the Musicians Equity Union as called for in 
 union contract even though they will not be asked to play a note...)
 TEN melanin-deprived testosterone-poisoned scions of the patriarchal
 ruling class system leaping,
 NINE persons engaged in rhythmic self-expression,
 EIGHT economically disadvantaged female persons stealing milk-products
 from enslaved Bovine-Americans,
 SEVEN endangered swans swimming on federally protected wetlands,
 SIX enslaved fowl-Americans producing stolen nonhuman animal products,
 FIVE golden symbols of culturally sanctioned enforced domestic
 (NOTE: after member of the Animal Liberation Front threatened to throw
 red paint at my computer, the calling birds, French hens and partridige
 have been reintroduced to their native habitat.  To avoid further

 FOUR hours of recorded whale songs,
 THREE deconstructionist poets,
 TWO Sierra Club calendars printed on recycled processed tree carcasses
 and a Spotted Owl activist chained to an old-growth pear tree.
