Hiding The Truth From Children - Poem by Saiom Shriver

Oscar Mayer ads had children singing
'I'd love to be an Oscar Mayer wiener.'
Such masochism was continued
by StarKist which showed Charlie
the Tuna wanting to be impaled
on a hook.
Arby's tells us bacon is a present
pigs give us if we're good.
McDonald's has ended its
ads showing its flesh sandwiches
growing gently in garden patches.

Representative Andrew Jacobs,
former congressman from Indianapolis:
'I so often said in the House in reference
to Vietnam that many eat the meat
but few go to the slaughterhouse that
I became a vegetarian.'
