The neatly wrapped packages of meat on the supermarket shelf
Belie the fact of what they are
Corpses of abused and murdered animals.

Because they don’t contain heads, hooves or tails
The connection is not made.

Would you be able to wield the knife at the slaughterhouse?

Listen to your heart
And align your soul and mind
With your actions.

If you don’t then you commit violent acts of indifference
Towards those who suffer terribly as a result.
