British Farmer's Son Shocks Vegan World with this video

Benjamin Fisher in the comments wrote it out:
'We're living in a nation

Where there's growing condemnation

Of what is done to those who cannot talk

I was blind to all their pain
so I couldn't feel the shame

In that broken piece of body on my fork

Then I wondered,
could any child breed a bird that can't be wild?

To eat its wings, take off its legs and its head?
So we pay for hidden slaughter
till we've addicted sons and daughters

To our habit of eating the dead

And it's not so very long,
since who could see the wrong

In breeding humans as slaves without pay

It could be a woman without a vote

Or killing a leopard for its coat

Did we ever see the evil of the day?

So do you think you're any better

Now the animals we fetter,
outnumber every human ten to one

And many children hardly eat

Because their food has fed your meat

While the blame for this shame, you pass on

So give me avocados

And I'll eat tofu burgers

You can even give me black bean curd

But please don't give me bread

If it's wrapping the dead

The remains of the body of a bird

For every piece of flesh you buy

You're paying to breed the next to die

By compassion, no longer are we led

And for the cow, it's worse, I fear

They rod, rape her every year

Take every calf, take all her milk

Until she's dead

This choice you say is your right

That you can eat just as you like

And it's merely an opinion that I voice

But your choice, it kills so many

This opinion kills not any

And your victims, you give them any choice?

So there's more to avocados

And eating tofu burgers

Than minimizing sickness and your girth

No less than Einstein did resolve

From eating flesh we must evolve

Or mankind, he said, may not survive on earth

The age in which we are living
is ever more misgiving
over what is done to those who cannot talk

Are you blind to all their pain

Can you not feel the shame

In that broken piece of body on your fork?
