The Horror

February 28, 2008

There was an unexpected program before my eyes

Of what is done so we can eat.

What I saw made me never want to eat another piece of meat.

Those steer were killed in a way that’s supposed to be humane.

But all I saw was another animal being slaughtered in vain.

I’m ashamed.

The bodies were cut open,

Blood poured out.

What I saw made me want to scream and shout.

Organs were everywhere.

They were no longer cattle.

They were innocent lives that I refuse to poke with a fork now.

I only eat it when I have to.

If you haven’t seen what’s done I feel sorry for you.

There’s no such thing as humane anymore.

There was an unexpected program before my eyes

Of what is done so we can eat.

What I saw made me never want to eat another piece of meat.
