Not sure this fits here, but seeing as I am rather new to the thought of vegetarianism I think this fits. Some years ago a friend asked me to write a poem about a pair of shoes. The poem was all cute and such back then, but takes on all new meaning now.

MY NAME IS...

I am a lycanthrope
Shapeshifter
Though I have changed but once,
I have become many

In my past form I merely wandered in a feild
No goals
No purpose
Aimlessly I wandered
...And I was happy

In my present form
I know that my time is dearly limited
Yet I know a higher light of happiness

Just last week,
I was able to feed ten small families
And a very large family reunion
This warmed me greatly,
Although I know those parts of me are gone forever

Back in the feild in which I used to wander,
Another part of me still remains
Wandering about in an aimless way

I have fed many with my inner flesh
And now I cover the feet of a child
You may now call me a pair of shoes
But my name is Bessie

When I wrote the poem it was meant to be a joke. However now I realize that animals are not just meat and by-products. Some animals have names aside from cow, pig, venison...
