Giving Food a Voice. By CpSingleton © 2015
I want grow a farm animal with
A strong human voice.
That way then I can offer it
The fairness of choice.
It can tell me how it feels when
It see friends sent for the chop.
I will show it the process from
Slaughter house to the shop.
Then I will give a tongue to the
Many varieties of veg.
The carrots, onions, spuds and
Berries that grow on the edge.
I will ask them the same question
Regarding their fate.
I’ll show them the journey from
The farm truck to the plate.
I will then smile at the kindness
Offered and sigh ’til I bust!
For then I will grow hungry
With my menu of dust.
