Adventures in Vegetarianism

This Thanksgiving, damn The Man for real and pass on the turkey. That foul never did anything to you or your mother so stop it already and read these quotes from vegetarian emcees.

I don't eat no meat, no dairy, no sweets
Only ripe vegetables, fresh fruit and whole wheat...
Life brings life, it's valuable, so I eat what comes
From the ground, it's natural
Let your food be your medicine
(From Dead Prez's "Be Healthy")

In the slaughterhouse full of germs and flies
Off with the head, they pack it, drain it, and cart it
And there it is, in your local supermarketRed and bloody, a corpse, neatly packed
And you wonder about heart attacks?
(From KRS-One's "Beef")

Over a billion served
What they never deserved
So as they drove away they swerved into the curb
With their heads on the steering wheel
Kids blacked out in the back with a fucking Happy Meal
What a crappy deal...The parking lot is now a burial plot
Where you can park and rot if you can find a spot
(From Mr. Lif's "The Fries")

Even if the meat wasn't genetically processed
It's all a bloody mess...I'm a human being
Who doesn't kill to get his protein
(From LMNO's "No Eyes, No Mouth")
