The ties that bind

Caught in a trap we make for ourselves,

Fed by tradition and lies,

We’re quietly complicit in

A holocaust hidden from innocent eyes

Meat and milk and eggs and skin –

A corporate machine

That butchers without conscience –

Voracious and obscene

And so the rope ensnares the beast,

A life and death defined

By our dominant dependency

On these twisted ties that bind
