Vegan, although they’ve given you much cause to darken
lighten it with your glowing smile, every now and then
for ‘tho you dwell in the shadows of inhumanity
you are our last surviving spark of sanity
So shine, you crazy vegan, shine on
As we are so very aware of the suffering plaguing our planet, it’s all too easy to grow cold and cutting, dark in heart. And so, as I walked down the city streets one sweltering noon and only a few miles from Butchertown, the tune from Pink Floyd played in my head. I reminded myself, shine on. And you too, you crazy vegans, shine on.
