I Heard

People Over Politics, World Over Wealth!

Bird and Butterfly ~ Philip Brent Harris

~~~~~

(The importance of negative space.)

I heard Monarch butterflies
migrating through California
have dwindled from millions
to around two thousand or so.
With them go the insects who
help pollinate all of our crops.
Will we pollinate by hand, let
plants not grow, trees perish?
Those we haven’t murdered to
butcher, to use as we choose.

Would it help, if each board or
cut of meat wear labeled with
a picture of the life sacrificed.
We are omnivores unchecked.
More we grow, worse we get.
Children grown, not grown up.
When will we realize the truth;
We let the bullied run the show.
If we mature, will we learn the
life sacrificed, may destroy all?

Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,

 

Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment 

Unite the World!

  1. “We are omnivores unchecked” we are even brought up children to think that we have to eat meat, once at school I was even forced to eat meat by the teacher.

  2. I’m glad I didn’t have that teacher. I am as meat eater, but still feel we need to acknowledge the animal from which we are consuming it.
