They Told Me It Was Food

They told
me it was
food
but that
wasn’t
true
what these
kind creatures
are put through
to come
to
my plate

A life
plagued with
pain fear
and hate
stuck Inside
barely alive
health
chemically
derived
they never
thrive

And when
they arrive
slaughtered
brutally
by hands
forced only
by the demand
that can’t
understand
what lies
inside
from a
life without
light

Eyes without
sight
find the design
of a life time
of denial
implanted
in my mind
meant to 
force me
to mindlessly
consume
