Animal Lover

I used to be an animal lover
But when becoming vegetarian
Stopped going by that name
Realised I had a long
Long way to go
For such a glorious accolade
That all the times before
I’d never really thought
Of the animals at all
Was instead just being vain
I used to love using animals
To say it straight and plain

Thanks for reading 🙂
