Hunger Is A Fine Sauce

Nature intended me to be
an omnivore: That’s what I am.
I will make no apology
because I enjoy beef and lamb.

Though others may have different views.
I find no cause for argument
if they enjoy their meatless stews.
A vegetarian precedent.

I do as nature bids me to
I eat what is available
and feel no guilt because I do.
Eat meat and fish and vegetables.

We have no choice we have to eat
I see no fault in eating meat.

It sounds very haunting, but still it is a great poem.
