Livestock's Long Shadow


Livestock's Long Shadow

The agricultural impact of today's society 
Is far more important than ever before, for 
The actions we take upon is what will allow 
Us to know what to do now, & not for the future. 
The Co2 devastation is now having a love affair 
Within the factories of the meat industry, 
Destroying the planet an inch further by every 
Bite we take upon the once-living rotting flesh.
The UN has spoken, now it's time for you to take action,
Abandon your savage ways, embrace the green by day.
Follow in pursuit for the truth of these industries, 
Demand for them to stop before our world is no more. 
Can't you see, the greenhouse is erupting, 
The meat-man is divulging, & we are consuming. 
Our daily lives have become far more detrimental 
Than any car, plane, or boat you will ever control,
It is this truth for we must take upon, knowing 
That tomorrow may never come, for we are the planet's last hope.

... well rotton ration eaters keep eating and those who keep preventions get control ... that is the reality of centuries too ....

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
