WE ARE THE LIVING GRAVE OF MURDERED BEASTS 
by George Bernard Shaw 

We are the living graves of murdered beasts 
Slaughtered to satisfy our appetites 
We never pause to wonder at our feasts 
If animals, like men, can possibly have rights 
We pray on Sundays that we may have light 
To guide our footsteps on the path we tread 
We're sick of war We do not want to fight 
The thought of it now fills our hearts with dread 
And yet 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. If thus we treat 
Defenseless 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 hecatombs of slain 
To God, while outraging the moral law 
Thus cruelty begets its offspring: war.
