What Americans Eat
By Colleen Ferro
An Animal Rights Poem from All-Creatures.org

All of God's creatures have rights, a fact that most people don't seem to recognize. This includes both human and non-human animals, but not all of them can speak for themselves.

What Americans Eat
By Colleen Ferro

It's very sad
what Americans eat
Murdered corpses
decomposing dead meat

Clogs up their arteries
to their hearts
Stops up the colon
and other parts

Soon comes the surgeon
scalpel in hand
Didn't you know?
it's part of their plan

Make you sick
with all that meat
So switch to barley
soy or wheat

It's all about profits
money and greed
The doctors won't tell you
your insurance they need

If you were healthy
where would they be?
Surely not in their homes
you paid for by sea!
