Herbivore

But where do you get your
protein
A usual reaction the default
reply I wonder if they think
the same thing when they go to the zoo
and visit the elephant and bison
and rhinoceros
Do they stare in amazement
at such large multicellular beings
and wonder
how can you be so strong and
how is it possible for your cell membranes
to maintain integrity
and you must also be worried about iron
when you mainly eat grasses
Does the rhino reply
well I cook with a lot of lentils
or explain that he doesn’t have a problem
with other animals eating meat
as long as they don’t cross-contaminate
the pitchforks
