very topical LULU book worth a read
With the news that our planet is slowly being destroyed with the cutting down of the trees in our life giving rainforests in order to make way for greedy industries like the meat industry and other unwise organisations, I think the above Lulu book is well worth a read. It's very intersting and helpful. For my part I have written a poem about the subject for my local newspaper. (and I do practice what I preach)
Compassion at Christmas (Saving our Planet)
Oh please be kind and gentle,
To creatures that you eat.
Choose chickens that are free range
If you love your chicken meat.
Hens crammed into a factory farm
Are cruelly forced to be,
In closed off sheds so foully crushed,
They suffer agony.
Most pigs reared in the UK
Spend lives in pain and grief.
Cooped up in pens with concrete floors,
No bedding no relief.
Mother sow placed in a crate,
To feed her nursing brood.
She cannot turn, can hardly move.
Her life is dark and crude.
Sheep and cattle love outdoors,
It causes me alarm,
They spend their lives in concrete yards.
The new intensive farm.
So many of these farms are made
By cutting lots of trees.
It really is so very sad
Our earth just cannot breathe.
The oxygen we get from trees
In forests far and wide,
Is ruined by the industries
So greedy and unwise.
So let your conscience be your guide,
Reduce your meat consumption.
Choose creatures that are kindly bred,
Not the intensive option.
