A response to The Daily Mail’s reporting of a vegan sticker found in a Morrison’s ready meal by a customer who felt ’emotionally blackmailed’.
I saw something on the news, today.
About a girl who was so offended
when she began to peel
the packaging off of her
beef bolognaise ready meal.
As she opened her dinner
she saw a sticker,
the sticker told her
She was so put off by this sticker
that she couldn’t even eat her dinner
And, of course, The Daily Mail stepped in.
So, apparently it is ‘aggressive’
What is actually more aggressive?
Putting a sticker on a ready meal package
Just telling you what it is
or, is it more aggressive
to hang someone upside down and skin them
-often whilst they still live-
tear their bodies apart and then bin them.
To slit a throat
and dip them into boiling vats?
Imagine if I did that to your fucking cat.
Is it more extreme to wear a vegan tee
or to gas a load of baby chicks
because they’re male and not needed in the egg industry.
What is more extreme
to eat tofu?
Or to literally chew
on the leg
of a baby lamb?
Me, and my aggressive septum piercing,
extreme almond milk,
and radical mascara
(that didn’t blind any Beagles?!)
gently, oh so carefully
Leah Mallet, 18 year old beauty therapist from Leeds,
Why does a sticker
horrify you so much?
And actual slaughter
not bother you at all?
And I, oh so politely,
say to you, The Daily Mail,
