Words to a Vegetarian.



I am quite convinced

That cows would call it vicious murder
To ingest a double burger,

And that hens would moan and beg
To save even a single egg.


The point is not too fine:
Where does one draw the line?


For berries would think it brutal,
To eat a cherry strudel,

And whole wheat would feel it's gross,
To make ANYTHING with toast.


So do without, if you must,
(I'm quite sure you think you're just),

BUT

In the end Life has merely one mandate,
Make sure to keep one's own flesh off the plate.
