2018 Sonnet 15

If carrots had feelings what would you eat?
In that case, we would eat mushrooms and moss
Or find kind ways to lull carrots to sleep,
And every salad would be gently tossed.

What if fishes knew they would be dishes?
Would they still take the bait? Jump in the net?
Bovine are dreamers; what are their wishes?
Turkeys and chickens aware? Place your bets!

Life is a pain on top of the food chain,
But we give a lot more than we receive.
Why must we humans be so darned humane?
No, wait! Not us! We don’t do; we believe

That everything’s okay with what we do
Cause everyone knows we’re better than you.
