Mary had a Little Lamb – 1816 racism 2016 speciesism – JUST SAY NO !
Violated rights – If you accept that animals have rights, raising and killing animals for food is morally wrong. An animal raised for food is being used by others rather than being respected for itself. In philosopher’s terms it is being treated as a means to human ends and not as an end in itself. This is a clear violation of the animal’s rights.
MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB
Mary had a little lamb, and she really didnt know,
that her cute and cuddly suckling friend was actually a dairy cow,
This made things difficult for farmer giles cuz the calf would have to go,
At 20 pints of milk a day, it would drink his profits low
To get the little lamb to slaughter was a tricky problem posed ,
as the loved and little lamb would go where mary goes
It followed her to school one day,
But was turned out by the door,
No animals at school they said the lamb was allowed no more,
It waited patiently in the yard , its fleece as white as snow,
Till farmer giles grabbed it there and quickly slit its throat,
Yea mary had a little lamb , oh yea oh yea,
Yes Mary had a little lamb until you slit its throat,
the studies hit the tabloid press in 2015 under headlines like”‘Cheese is from plants’ – “Shocking food survey reveals a fifth of UK children don’t know bacon comes from pigs..” and that more than a third of the youngsters surveyed have never heard actual real life cow or sheep noises points clearly to a worrying ignorance about where their meals come from”..
so that’s what this song is all about, yeah we coined the old rhyme “Mary had a little lamb ” and then banged on about dairy cows in the next breath as if one was the other, because people are so willfully ignorant that they simply do not get that meat and dairy are coming from living loving sentient beings,
that people are desensitised and so far so very very far removed from these animals to not even know what animal is slaughtered for, or is used to produce what product..
Stupidity is the fastest spreading disease on the planet and we have to work against it and limit it, expose the facts and help people remake the connections that the food industry marketing machine have wiped from the slate.
Look up the polls,. check it on line see how far gone society is,.how the normalisation of Ethical abuse is justified based on specicism.
a calf can be a lamb can be a puppy can by a boy can be a slave where profit is involved , the law that allows this speciest profiteering to exist and it is fundamentally wrong,
just as the white europeans classed black people as a different species under slavery and used this as the justification to subject them to a life of oppression and privation, , so it is happening with domesticated animals the world over.
For the last , and only the last 126 years, whether its peoples so called choice to eat steaks, or ice cream sodas, dog meat (now available and becoming common place in switzerland) or testing tobacco products on beagle puppies, or trapping and murdering majestic wolves for their hides to be crassly regurgitated as hood trims for some over priced canadian elitist brand machine, or whether it is burning out rabbits eyes for this years soap scent or opening monkeys heads for a look see because there brains are so much like ours and apparently warrant study , Its speciesism
