Don’t Eat Meat

supermarket

 

Don’t eat meat, please don’t eat meat,
That animal once had eyes and feet –
And ears and nose and front legs too,
And felt things, just like me and you.
.
A lump of flesh on your plate now,
There are baby pigs who miss that sow –
Who cry at night with broken hearts,
Their dear old mum now chopped in parts.
.
Don’t eat meat, please don’t eat meat,
That creature had a pulse which beat –
And knew Earth’s pains; her pleasures few,
Yet prized her life, just as we do.
.
Now sizzling in some person’s pan,
Killed for the gluttony of man,
Who of himself a graveyard makes,
And someone’s sacred breath just takes.
.
Don’t eat meat, please don’t eat meat,
Your brothers and sisters always treat –
With loving kindness, gentle care,
Because they too this planet share.
.
And weren’t just born for human use,
For fear and pain and cruel abuse!
Their cries, their screams, the same as ours,
Just look at how he shudders, cowers.
.
Such arrogance of the human race,
To think they have a special place,
In Mother Nature’s warm embrace –
That never really was the case.
,
All equal in the Law Divine:
Each blessed and precious; here to shine.
So don’t eat meat, please don’t eat meat,
If there’s a face, it’s there to greet.
