"Treat me like a piece of meat"

Well, guess what, you ARE meat.

So am I, and so is everyone reading this.

Granted, you may not be fit for human consumption, but you sure are fit for insect and bacterial consumption.

Every animal is another's meat.

Treated like meat? Well that's Capitalism. Capitalism, a system by which everything has its price. Even people.

People get all up in arms over prostitution, but what do you call wage slavery?

That McDonalds worker is being exploited - in ways FAR worse than prostitution. And it's perfectly legal.

At least the prostitute gets paid a living wage (most of the time)

But here's the kicker: that CEO who keeps wages at poverty levels? That politician who does nothing for workers? That consulting agency who busts unions?

They are all going to die.

Someday, they too will be another animals' meat.

And during this time, all of their money will be useless. All of their power, gone.

They will be left just a pile of stinking, rotten meat.

2. Boy does that put me in the mood to enjoy the weekend.

I don't know how you do it, but I've been kind of down with all this Syria talk, but somehow you picked me right up Taverner. Thanks!

Bryant

4. Thank you, Taverner.

Not sure whether to be gratified, or slit my wrists.

7. Nothing like an upper to start the weekend right.

 

Aw, shit, I can smell the rotten meat now. At least I was planing a meatless dinner tonight. So maybe your multi-chromatic word picture will fade by tomorrow.
