Murder Is Murder

Right from wrong,

Who makes the distinction?

We listen to society?

Sounds like moral-extinction.


We weep for those murdered,

the ones unfairly taken.

But what about the 9.1 billion

Animal-lives turned into “bacon.”


Do you ever stop to think,

“Who is it that I’m eating?”

Who had to die,

While your heart's still beating?


I hear constant excuses,

Like, “Morality is subjective.”

“Meat is convenient”

“All vegans are defective.”


But what if you knew,

That no animal wants to die,

Much like humans.

Would you think before you buy?


I kindly ask you to wake up,

Consider why you will eat a cow,

But would never ever consider,

Your adorable dog chow.
