WOULD YOU EAT YOUR DOG FOR CHRISTMAS?
by Jenny Moxham jennymoxham@hotmail.com

Would you eat your dog for Christmas?
Would you carve her up with a knife?
Then why eat the innocent turkey
Who is just as deserving of life?

Would you kill your kitten for festive fare?
Would you serve her sliced on a tray?
Then why treat the harmless and fun-loving pig
In this heartless and horrible way?

If you think the idea quite shocking,
To murder and slice up your pet,
It is equally shameful and shocking,
To do it to those you've not met.

For a hog treasures life just as much as a dog
And a turkey as much as a cat,
And they all have a right to their God given life,
It's simply as simple as that.

So when you go shopping at Christmas,
And pass by the enormous array,
Of tragic young plastic-wrapped corpses,
Whose lives have been taken away,

Make a vow that you'll buy only 'peaceable' fare
And refuse to partake in the kill,
For I'm sure you'll agree that's the way it should be
In this season of Peace and Goodwill.
