For the Love of Meat
By David Smith December 8, 2012
Cows eat grass and pigs eat junk;
That’s their diet; I could live without.
When it comes to fine cuts and licking platters clean
It’s nice to know their diet to keep our health so keen.
Seeing choicest cuts on a deli shop display
How can the consumer know, the diet for the day?
What goes in the animal besides the grass and meds?
And all the growth and chemicals to our body it is fed.
Now I stop and think; a diet is so real
The famer has responsibility on the package there to seal
And so we have our diets, and what is eating me
Are the fields that rich and healthy as we lose our honey bee?
