GOING GREEN
A VEGETARIAN’S RATIONALE

Spiders congregate in corners
of my house.
They weave away,
stringing their spooky webs
right in plain sight,
delighted with my oblivious eye.

Eventually, the light
reflects in such a way
that I discover their devious
hideaways of dangling
threads that taunt me.
I grab my broom.

“But wait,” you say
“You, a vegetarian, you wouldn’t
kill a living creature
would you?
They are part of nature,
catching bugs for you.”

Too late! My broom’s in motion
I whack the little buggers.
How dare they
come into my house.
Don’t worry though
I won’t eat them.
