Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Living Graves
by George Bernard Shaw

We are the living graves of murdered beasts

Slaughtered to satisfy our appetites

We never pause to wonder at our feasts

If kine, like men, can possibly have rights

We pray on Sundays that we might have light

To guide our footsteps on the path we tread

We’re sick of war - we do not want to fight -

The thought of it now fills our heart with dread.

And yet - we gorge ourselves upon the dead!

Like carrion crows we live and feed on meat,

Regardless of the suffering and pain

We cause by doing so. If thus we treat

Defenseless animals for sport or gain,

How can we hope in this world to attain

The peace we say we are so anxious for?
