Plants Have Feelings Too!
By Mango Wodzak

"Plants have feelings too you know!"

Replied the troll with face aglow,

"You and me we're just the same,

your vegan arguments are lame!

We have to kill, all life's alike,

you vegans all should take a hike!"

"Hmm, let me think on this a while,

sit and ponder as you smile..

put my thoughts in rank and file..

I find your stance a tad senile.."

"So, let me get your viewpoint straight,

Now that killings up for debate,

you're proposing plants and pigs equate,

and believe your reasoning's checkmate?!"


"To cut a tale off of a fawn,

- just the same as mow the lawn!?

killing animals all forlorn,

bares no difference to picking corn,

that lettuce leaves, from lettuce torn,

equate with slaughtering lambs newborn?"


"Answer truthfully if you dare,

I'd like to find how much you care..

get your viewpoint fair and square..."


"Imagine a day spent slaughtering goats..

stabbing their hearts or cutting their throats..

and now another picking oats...


“You really think you'd feel the same?

as nonchalant as you proclaim?

That slicing necks would bring no shame,

for you it's like a parlour game?

You'd simply have no qualms, the animals to mame,

slaughter, slice and dice,

least not any more than the gathering of rice?”


“If your neighbour stabbed his puppy dog, to eat the flesh proceeds,

you'd agree whole heartedly, that's like pulling out the weeds?!

You wouldn't bat an eyelid, to you it's all akin,

you don't care what it is you kill you'd do it with a grin?”
