Nourishing Slaughter

I had to change my diet after realizing how many lives were wastefully destroyed for the sake of my simple meals. The horror. The GUILT! I couldn’t take it anymore. No life, no matter how insignificant, should be sacrificed for my table. I’ll change my habits. I’m changing my habits. I’ve changed my habits. But I still have nightmares. Heavy thoughts of heavy machinery, plucking, picking, sheering. Those poor insects! Those poor mice! How could I be so blind to the tractor’s destruction. Billions of lives reaped with each harvest! No sir! No more vegetables for me. VEGAN NO MORE!

Would there be so many vegans if plants had mouths to scream with, or legs to flee with?

I recall a while back having this exact same thought. But I'm glad you had it too--and I'm even gladder you drabblized it.

I have to confess, this drabble was inspired from knowing someone once who claimed to be a vegan strictly for "health reasons." But then refused to eat honey, despite its health benefits, because bees get smashed when collecting it. Their justification confuses me still today, years later.

Thanks for liking it guys. :)
