|| What do we have here – some vegetarian credo?
|| Sounds like it. The author probably had ambivalent feelings about meat.
|| Hey – all of us are meat.
In the belly of time we're all being devoured, so why not enjoy the food that comes?

Jes' holding a hamburger, right?
Well, that is only the surface ah the story.
You're also supporting an economic infrastructure,
& Ronald McDonald's Way of Life.
You're directly approving animal slaughter
& accepting what consumerism implies.
You are saying "yes" ta genetic engineering,
& ridiculous employee wages.
That hamburger iz a manifestation
ah many global inequities:
it showz how millions lack enuf ta eat,
so that the rich enjoy cocktailz-caviar-n-beef.
Look closely between the buns:
the issues we face
are in each burger on yer plate.
