Poem about horse slaughter

Just something I came up with. It's out of the horse's point of view.
I am broken
I am miserable
I'm half asleep

I was sold at some show
For a song
I wasn't there for long
2, 4 maybe 5 dollars.

I am approached
By something like a roach.
Crooked teeth
Nasty grin.

I am led into a trailer
Squished with other horses
A young gelding,
An old mare,
And some other I wouldn't dare
To look at.

We are unloaded, but my legs buckled
And failed beneath me.
Words are yelled,
And I was beaten.
I patiently wait for them to finish
Like I've always had.

Finally I stood up
And was led away.
I saw none of the other horses,
But it's ok.
I knew what was coming next.
My owner has told me stories,
But I'm not afraid,
It's better this way.

I was led into a shed,
And there was a bang.
Just like me,
My life was sold for a song.

I know it doesn't rhyme, it's not supposed too, and I know it's not scientifically corrected, it's not supposed to be .
Love, WaveHorse :)

What emotion were you trying to elicit with your writing?

If it gets that response, you're on the right track.

To me, it is depressing and sad, so you achieved that!

It's really good, made me feel sad while I was reading it.

Only bit I didn't get was 'life being sold for a song.' I love how it sounds, but it doesn't make any sense. What does it mean?

Geld, spay and neuter and prevent useless suffering.

@Chokolate - It means they didn't think twice before buying him, and they didn't think twice before taking his life. It doesn't really matter to them (them being the slaughter person - thingies :P)

Ah, I understand now. It was a very touching poem, you have a talent for capturing emotion.
