Be A Vegetarian - Poem by POOJA NATARAJAN

I wonder why people
eat animals as dishes
from hen to meat
from amphibians to fishes?

It is cruel
for slaves to be beaten
how horrible it is
for a living being to be eaten?

It is not good
to eat a non-vegetarian diet
but eating a vegtetarian meal
does keep diseases quiet!

When the buying stops
the killing will too
think my friend what will happen
if a giant gobbeled up you!

    I don't understand how people can tell their dogs and cats they love them but then eat a cow. I mean what difference is there other than that dogs and cats are domesticated? (Report) Reply

    If you listen to Peace TV, Dr. Naik justifies eating flesh. Ofcourse, I am a vegetarian from my birth till date. (Report) Reply
