Treasure Island

Vegetarianism


Innocent animals are not ignorant
But let with manure grow plants abundant
Innocent plants are not ignorant
But the strength of exemplarily an elephant

Obese with the slaughtered is befoulment
Free of fat and toxin is vegetarian treatment
An animal eaten is then God indignant
Social life wild is then in endangerment

Vegetarianism is brainy, fulgent
Strength of breeding animals innocent
Vegetarianism is humaneness triumphant
Strength of morals resplendant

    As being a pure vegetarian I share your thoughts….
    Till date I am unable to understand that how can one touch flesh with their tongue…the thought itself is repulsive, a gesture of kindness towards the animals is also primary…
    Killing to eat, for fun or for any other purpose in inhuman….

Poem of the Day

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
