This Little Piggy Said

THIS LITTLE PIGGY SAID...

Before you bring me to slaughter 
You need to know
I can love 
I can feel sorrow
I can feel pain
I know the feeling of loss
And Tears well in my eyes

Before you bring me to slaughter
You need to know
I have a heart
I have companions
I can recognize you
I know who you are 
I will be missed by the others

Before you bring me to slaughter
You need to know
I have babies
I am a mother
I am a father
I am part of this world
And I have been given death 

Before you bring me to slaughter
You need to know
I have been denied 
I have had no existence 
I am your next meal 
Or your next side dish 
I just wanted a chance to be 

Before you bring me to slaughter
You need to know
I will be forgotten
I am one of millions
Taking the last walk
A reprieve to this horrid life
No mercy bestowed to a beast 

Before you bring me to slaughter
You need to know
I can love
I would love you
I could cure your lonely heart
I die alone, marked, in the crimson
All this against my will to live
