No Body wants to eat meat after reading this Heart Wrenching Poem except If one is heart-less

When mum gave birth to a baby,
All chorused, 'Well done mum!'
But mother didn't say a word
Because this mum was dumb.

When baby was a few days old
Their mouths began to water 
The innocent little baby would
Very soon be gone for slaughter.

When baby was but two weeks old
They put her on the scales
From there into a wooden box
Made fast with iron nails.

They took the baby to a place
Which had a crimson floor,
The walls were coated too of course
With crimson guts and gore.

They dragged the baby from the box
Onto the bloody ground
And when the shocks were sent through her
She didn't make a sound.

They hung the baby by her feet
Onto a moving chair
But no one stopped to ask about
The excruciating pain.

The baby traveled upside down
And met a bloody knife
And when the knife plunged into her
She parted with her life.

The baby hung there motionless,
Her entrails swam below
The reason for her violent death?
The lamb would never know.

They ripped the skin, clean off her back
And hacked her into two
The reason for the baby's death?
was simply HOT LAMB STEW!!!!

Wow...during and after reading this poem I was stuck between crying, cringing, and screaming (with anger). I knew that this happened to all animals, but reading this made it all the more real. I would never eat meat after reading this (though I already abstain from consuming living flesh), and I hope to God that no one at least would have dry eyes and calm stomachs after reading this. Beautifully written--well done.

Most profound thing I've read in a very long time.  So glad to be a veg!

:( Very sad. What's upsetting is, some people claim to even watch footage of these events via documentary, and don't bat an eye to eat meat again.

That's something I can't understand. If you really had a heart (and soul), you should not be able to eat meat after watching such a horrid video. At the very least you should feel very uncomfortable and bad about eating it, thinking about how your burger or hot dog got onto your plate.

very sad to read this poem, lucky me never harm any animals.

The very reason I went veg...I watched a PETA video on factory farming.  I 'heard' a little piglet sqealing, while I was eating chicken!  Changed me forever!

I think some people do feel bad but they don't leave it completely is because people grow up thinking its normal to eat animals. Another thing is society has turned food from a necessity into a pleasure. People forget that's why we eat-to survive! But now people focus more on what tastes good. And its hard for them to think about no longer eating those things. ...this is why im convinced food addiction exist.

Leo Tolstoy:  "Thou shalt not kill" does not apply to murder of one's own kind only, but to all living beings; and this Commandment was inscribed in the human breast long before it was proclaimed from Sinai.  As long as there are slaughter houses there will always be battlefields."

願雲禪師 《戒肉食偈》: 「千百年來碗裡羹,  怨深似海恨難平,  預知世上刀兵劫,  但聽屠門夜半聲。

The Buddha: "All beings tremble before violence. All fear death. All love life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do? ~ Dhammapada 129-130

Most people out there don't have a clue what's going on behind the scenes to get their precious meat on the plate. Wish everyone would watch documentary "Earthlings" so powerful that it changes peoples lives forever!
