Meat

My eyes scan the rows of meat in the store,
Neon price stickers flash prices,
These stickers don’t show the animals’ war.
 
Confined living spaces make it so animals can hardly stand,
Decomposing animal carcasses in animal living areas,
Animals slip in excrement and urine while this company is labeled as a cruelty-free brand.
 
Chickens’ sensitive beaks are seared off to stumps painfully,
Their throats are slit,
Some miss the blade and are scalded alive, humanity is a vacancy.
 
Every price tag cannot put a price on invaluable life,
These animals have a purpose in life, but this is not it,
These animals deserve to be happy, not at the end of a knife.
