I was five years old in a white dress
Too young to see what I saw that night
I saw a sheep be slaughtered before my eyes
Did anyone try to cover them, to pull me away?
Neck partially cut, blood draining out
The poor little thing was moving her limbs
I still remember her innocent brown eyes
They haunt my dreams
Later that night a feast was served
Delicious kabobs Made from this sacrifice.
Is it a cruel world
when a wedding party
celebrates by killing sheep?
Is this really worse than any other way
when we serve and eat meat?
Is it wrong to see or do the killing
before the eating
Do the sheep and the cow
or chicken and fish
anything else that lives
Really care if we see when they are being killed
Or if we buy them in nice little packs
No bones and no blood
very neatly cut
that I really doubt
