A bullet through the brain,
Is said by some to be humane.
To be killed swiftly after a life of misery,
No freedom, no equality, just bigger cages, longer chains.
Is a murderer not a killer if they gas but do not cut?
Would you be willing to give your life for others to consume?
If they killed and slaughtered quickly, would that make it OK?
Would a sticker of approval make such evils go away?
If you were the one held in slavery,
Then it would be much easier for you to see.
That regulation won’t set anyone free,
It’ll merely tighten the grips of your slavery.
No sticker of approval makes slavery OK.
No talk of “humane” killing will make murder go away.
