Her

I remember the taste
the scrumptious meat.
Biting into flesh
Life was a treat.

I remember the look
the face that smiled
the one that said
‘are you buying me for a dime’?

A favour, I did
Let you die with a slit.
A favour I did
You’ll be re-born with wit.

Why? We all need to survive
If not you, I’d die
Why? The plants don’t cry?
If not you, why must they die?

One day I saw
One day I heard.
One day I choked.
With an unsought sight.

Eat a human. We all need to survive
If not you, I’d die.
Why? The animals don’t cry?
If not you, why must they die?

My senses are sensitive
Little more than the cow
If I butcher my own
I'd cry on just the sound.
Little more than the spinach
If you butcher her
Her friends would hate that screeching sound.

It’s because she’s hurt
It’s because she’s crying
It’s because they know
They’re next in line.

Hey Hey, human!
Yelps every animal.
Eat me if you must.
Just kill me quick.
Hear my dying wish.

I’d like some food.
A place to rest.
(I'd like to live)
Let my folks not see
While you butcher me to death.
I promise- I'll still be your best friend.
