Animal Lover

 

Good morning, sweetheart
Rise from your warm bed of fresh hay
Stretch your limbs, sleepily
Look at those big, bright eyes
I pray you dreamt good dreams last night.
Come here, my princess
My soft-furred clover muncher
You’re such a treat
You’re so very sweet
You’ve grown so nice & fattened
& ready to eat.
Come now, dearie
You’ll make a delicious chili
Mmmm
&, you will go so well with biscuits & gravy
My little poppet in a pot pie
My dry rubbed, slow cooked beloved
My scrumptious angel
My delectable darling
I’ll sautéed you with pepper
& roast you in the oven
With carrots & potatoes, love, you will stew
In Rubens
With stuffing
Oh! In stir fry’s, too!
Come, boo
It’s limitless what I can do with you
This way now, sugar
Here, behind the shed
Hush now, babe, don’t you dread
Darling, it’s why you were bred…
Shhh, haven’t you listened to what I’ve been saying?
You’ve lived well until your killing
Hush now, Doll, please don’t fight
You know that i did everything right!
I raised you!
I housed you!
I fed you!
I pet you!
I loved you!
I love you seared, my dear
I love you minced, my prince
Mmmm, my tasty little nugget
I love you, bright eyes
You’ll melt in my mouth, caramelized
Oh, & you will be exquisite with fries
Now, now my angel
You nummy little morsel
You gentle brown eyed forkful
Alas, stew?
Stroganoff?
Meatball?
My beautiful
So versatile
In thyme & onions I’ll savor
Every luscious mouthful
That I can promise you
You’ve grown so big, my lovely
You’ll fill plateful after plateful
Oh, Cherie, hear my stomach rumble
Tidbit after tidbit
On you, darling, I shall nibble
Oh honey,
Your
Blood
Is
So
Warm
So
Very
Red
Close your eyes now, beautiful
Be dutiful
Time to eat you
Adieu

 

Vile, eh?
Demented, yeah?
That’s animal welfare for ya.

Animal rights– animals are not ours to use for food, clothing, entertainment, or experimentation.
Animal welfare– using animals is fine as long as “humane” guidelines are sorta, kinda followed.

Factoid:
Welfare activism is INADEQUATE
Welfare activism pretends to help animals
…Suggesting that people shouldn’t ‘abuse’ the very beings that are used for food
Compromise is a cop out when you are unable or unwilling to deal with, or even acknowledge the actual issues.

  1. Hi Heidi, Marvelously balanced interior monologue, like watching a death dance that goes on and on. Complicity never ends if you always need to maintain that exhausting balance. The euphemisms used by marketers keep the illusion alive. They suggest a deep concern for animal *welfare*. Cage-free just means stuffing more animals into a larger cage with walls and fences. By welcoming animal *rights* no such truth-dodges are necessary — it’s truth on truth.
