The dripping meat you habitually eat

The dripping meat you habitually eat

He says
You’re slipping further
Slipping further
Where will it all end?

See to me it feels like
Flying higher
Flying higher
Who’s looking for an end?

The more I read the more
I feel empowered
Empowered by knowledge
That could throw me down
And make me despair
But instead
I feel empowered

I
Can
Make
A
Difference

I don’t want to be part of the problem
Don’t want to watch as
The biodiversity of this world is trampled
Into dust
By cloven hooves

Don’t want to live in a
Burning inferno
(Call me crazy)
A desert where once there were trees
Flowers
Streams
I don’t want these to be memories
Tall tales we recount to our children
Who
Can’t fathom
Our meaning

It’s easy to look away
And it’s easy to believe
That you need that steak
You need that cheese
You couldn’t live without it

But the truth is
You can and
You should

I’m not beating around the bush
Cos soon there’ll be no bush to beat around anyway
Open your eyes and actually look
Staring you in the face is the clear and horrifying link
Between the
Dripping meat you
Habitually eat
And the devastation of our natural world
