Little Did I Think

Little
did I think
the meat
I used
to eat
was killed
and killing
me
the Earth
and sea
consuming
more water
than all
watering
of yards
and washing
of cars

The faults
of the world
are
and aren't
ours
They’re  in
impacts
from choices
we make
not in hate
but on
our plate

It only
takes
one meal
to save
the
human race
reducing
sixty
percent
of water
use
on what
it takes
to grow
corn
soy
and grains
to raise
the beef
to make
the burger
that tastes
like it’s
past time
to change
our minds
or it
will come
our turn
to die
