                    A POEM BY GEORGE BERNARD SHAW.
                       We are living graves of murdered beasts
                           Slaughtered to satisfy our appetites.
                        We never pause to wonder at our feasts,
                    If animals like men could possibly have rights.
                     We pray on Sunday that we may have light,
                     To guide our footsteps on the paths we tread.
                     We are sick of war, we do not want to fight,
                         And we gorge ourselves upon the dead.
                    Like Carrion Crows we live and feed on meat,
                           Regardless of the suffering and pain
                         We cause by doing so, in this we treat,
                         Defenceless animals for sport or gain -
                        How can we hope in this world to attain
                        The peace we say we are so anxious for,
                        We pray for it o'er hetacomba of slain,
                         To God while outraging the moral law,
                     Thus cruelty begets the offspring --- WAR !
