Cheeseburger, steak, Chicken wings
The words that make mouths water
That make us run to the fridge
But what is inside that food?
The souls of the helpless animals
Their cries for help
drowned out by deafening machines
Abused from birth to death
Some only seeing darkness
Others beaten; slaughtered alive
Our dogs and cats are animals
So what are cows and chicken?
They feel pain and show love
They see and hear things
So why do we treat them like food?
Before I go to order that #7
I think to myself, they are animals too
