one reason i am vegeterian

Living Graves

We are the living graves of murdered beasts
,Slaughtered to satisfy our appetites.
We never pause to wonder at our feasts,
If animals, like men, can possibly have rights.
We pray on Sundays that we may have light,
To guide our footsteps on the path we tread.
We're sick of war, we do not want to fight -
The thought of it now fills our hearts with dread,
And yet - we gorge ourselves upon the dead.
Like carrion crows we live and feed on meat,
Regardless of the suffering and the pain we cause by doing so,
if thus we treatdefenceless animals for sport or gain,
how can we hope in this world to attain,
the PEACE we say we are so anxious for.
We pray for it o'er hecatombs of slain,
to God, while outraging the moral law,
thus cruelty begets its offspring - WAR.

Hello Mademoiselle-HH,

Just googled for Cairo vegeterian and it threw up your blog.

Basically I am from India and will be coming on a 2 month business trip shortly to Cairo. Am a complete veggie. So wanted to explore whether I can survive :)

Can I ??

Reading your blog gives me some hope
