THE MISERY ON YOUR PLATE
by Emma Murphy
Will you look them in the eye,
Will you hear their tortured cries,
Will you feel their pain and fear,
Or will you blindly dine on lies?
Will you look the other way,
And kid yourself that all is well?
While deep, deep down you surely know
That those you eat have gone through hell.
Why can't you feel the heartache
That your money generates?
Why can't you taste the bitter life
That lays across your plate?
