No Animals

Two people sit on a settee looking at a TV that is behind the camera. The person on the right, a man, eats pizza from a box; while a woman, in the middle, eats salad from a bowl; to her left, a terrier dog also sits on the settee while looking at the food longingly.Thoughts on animals and the film industry via the medium of poetry.

With thanks to Andres Ayrton for use of the header image.

People want to see
No animals were harmed
In the movie credits
But the same can’t be said
Of what they eat
While watching

Thanks for reading 🙂
