The other 1%

There’s always one son of a gun
Who lets out a cheer for vegan beer
A smile for a mention of fakin bacon
A nod for tofu cod
When I praise vegan cheese
That doesn’t give youheart disease
The other 1% are always pleased
The other 1% have my back
Four cold hours to get 3 minutes footage
Or change hearts and share a message
Two days travel to support an islander
Because without one another we’re all lost at sea
But between you and me there’s a lot of slander I see
Cause it gets really tough when the world puts taste above love
So you start to think everyone’s mean
And no one cares about living green
As long as they eat meat that’s lean
So you pin your hopes on someone elses answer
But it’s just a shot in the dark
When everyone round you is getting cancer
You really want to do something to make your mark
But we have to make that mark together
Or politics will pull us apart forever
Because it’s 1 in 3 dying eating Brie
So take it from me this one percent has got to be free
To speak out for the voiceless
and mourn the lifeless
And talk to your loved ones because we can’t afford to do anything less.

Background

This poem was written in response to various fall outs of vegan groups that I have joined and is a call for unity between them.  For advice on how to go vegan check out challenge 22.
