A Vegetarian and A Scientist

Updated: Jul 13


A Vegetarian who eats bacon

Like a Scientist who believes in God,

Seem they’ve their belief systems forsaken,

The figurative shoemaker’s child unshod.


It belies consistency, so we think,

When others deviate from their septum

And mix and match ingredients to drink

So that we feel obliged to correct them.


Perhaps it’s we who need the correcting.

They simply are doing what they think right

And that upon some intense reflecting

Some exceptions to rules did they invite.


But to think bad of either is meanness.

Rather that, we should applaud their genius!
