Eat the creatures killed for sale,
But never pull the pussy’s tail.
Eat the flesh from “filthy hogs”
But never be unkind to dogs.
Grow up into double-think —
Kiss the hamster; skin the mink.
Never think of slaughter, dear,
That’s why animals are here.
They only come on earth to die,
So eat your meat, and don’t ask why.
— Jane Legge: Learning to Be a Dutiful Carnivore
