The Lesson
by [email protected] 

Priorities needing to rearrange
I've awakened and made a change
I didn't notice or give a thought
to the misery my meat brought

Life I've learned to embrace
not to eat those that had a face
Eating flesh ~ humanities crime
it holds us in barbaric time

Once lusted aroma ~ repulsive now
with the pledging of a meatless vow
My head no longer turned
to this lesson I have learned

For the voiceless I will speak
and fight this war for the weak
Until all others see the light
And the world sets things right
