Amen

Eat In Peace

let me eat in peace

spare me the story

the videos

the tweets

of whatever war was going on

because there is always a war going on

don’t bother me

with more exploitative narratives 

of the people who produced

this yummy food

in the face of wars

famine

their own children

not eating

what I get to eat

no one needs to know all that

 

we just want to eat in peace

even if  real peace is impossible

because it doesn’t equal profit

money is lost

economies stagnate

when there isn’t exploitation

of people

of land

or resources

 

let me eat in peace

keep the reality away from the table

the lack of nutritional content

in the food is irrelevant

the suffering sacrifice of animals

makes meals even tastier

don’t you think

because we don’t want to think

we only want to eat in peace

amen
