One By Name
Other customs often appall
self-righteousness blinds us all
We dislike what others eat
our loved pets they call meat
Other customs other places
all that differ are the faces
We point and we judge so quick
calling them cruel and sick
Others may eat cats and dogs
but what of our cows and hogs?
Eaten are the ones we adore
but does that mean pets suffer more?
All suffer til they are dead
and the life's blood is just as red
Do they not die the same
though we only call one by name?
We accept our brutal way
and judge our equals every day
Still we blindly refuse to admit
it differs not whose throat was slit.
