Killing animals is unethical,
Eating meat is unhealthy,
So why do humans do it,
This unsightly unwholesome crime?
And entirely unjustified.
Pop and crackle,
Fizz and bubble,
The witch stirs her cauldron
On the fire in her hovel.
She shrieks at the night
It will happen alright,
The life-giving force
Of her potion’s in sight.
It’s got onions and greens,
Carrots and beans,
There’s garlic and lentils,
She’s hungry and keen
To gobble it up,
From bowl and from cup,
The magic of plants
She’ll slurp and she’ll sup.
Chickens are people
Just like dogs.
They enjoy dust baths
And jumping on logs.
Chickens will play games
Like ‘chase’ and ‘steal your smalls’.
They’ll splash you in the paddling pool,
Though not keen on fetching balls.
Some of them are gentle,
Some of them are tough.
Some of them are bossy,
Some timid and soft as fluff.
They all have personality
And every one is different.
Just like Rover and Fido and Max
They might be quiet or exuberant.
Remember I wanted to make a new hat
With the yarn from old hats I’d unravelled?
Remember I said Random Rose made a hat,
A beret with ridges she cabled?
Well I followed the pattern that Rose kindly shared,
Though the yarn had lost elasticity.
The needles I used were not quite the right size,
But I wasn’t going to let that stop me.
So I finished my hat and I’m pleased how it went,
Cream and purple go well together.
I admit it turned out bigger than it was meant,
For my head is decidedly smaller.
As luck would have it, Miranda’s got a big head,
Though not the metaphorical kind.
So I decided to give it to her instead,
And I honestly really don’t mind.
New business cards we have at last,
“Hurrah! Hurrah!” we say,
We just can’t wait to slip them in books
Or otherwise give them away!
