Vegan Steven's Vegan Clothes - Poem by Benjamin Zephaniah

Remember that vegan called Steven
Yes he would not kill for no reason,
Well I saw him today
Wearing nothing I say
But some cabbage leaves
With a few peas on.

    Even a branch of tree bleeds sap if you break it off. Vegetables are living things, we feed off death, it's how we survive as we grab the last pea from its pod. Is there anything we eat that doesn't have to die for us to consume it? Even water has memory and none of us can actually feel each others pain, we can only imagine. Now there's a thought.
