I Eat Kids

by Barry Louis Polisar

I always thought that cows looked prettier in a field
Than on my plate at supper being served up as the meal.
And though I do like hamburger, fried chicken or a steak,
I prefer my chickens cackling to fried, cooked or baked.
I stopped eating animals and I'm glad I finally did;
But I get my protein 'cause I eat kids.

It used to be a problem just eating rice and beans
And I think you probably know exactly what I mean.
And I never really knew if I was eating all I should
But I don't have that problem know and it feels pretty good
I stopped eating animals and I'm glad I finally did;
But I get my protein 'cause I eat kids.

So its goodbye veal marsala, goodbye leg of lamb,
Hello Michael, Sarah, Mark and Pam.
I won't eat chicken and I won't eat a cow;
I don't eat animals, I eat children now.
I stopped eating animals and I'm glad I finally did;
But I get my protein 'cause I eat kids.
