9th April, 2016 (vegetables)

I heard somewhere
– or at least someone said –
vegetables scream
when they’re picked – even
for something as peaceful
as a salad! A source of
vitamins, or a side for a steak.

These poor, delicious veggies
sacrificed for our plates.

Children of course
– because of their innocence-
are the worst offenders of all,
neglecting, or playing with, or
just pushing them away.
