Horsemeat Scandal in Europe

 

Horsemeat Scandal in Europe

 

By Elton Camp

 

“Beef” is a word that’s loosely applied

Although to most, cow meat is implied

 

It’s off to the slaughterhouse with old Mag

It seems it’s been the same with the old nag

 

Let’s hope you have a stomach that’s strong

It’s been shown they’ve done this right along

 

But, the facts I’m forced to admit, of course

There’s no special hazard in eating a horse

 

A person’s food choice is a cultural thing

Chinese eat dogs, to the mind does spring

 

In other places, people will eat a rat

To me, plenty is wrong with that

 

If I’ve ever eaten horse, I didn’t know it

Otherwise, I likely would up throw it

 

Nor would I choose a taste of a cat,

But I’d greatly prefer it to eating rat

 

“So hungry I could eat a horse,” we say

But, in Europe, many have done that way

 

Should we check beef sold in the USA?

I hope it says “Moo” and not “Neigh”

 

It’s true that veganism has its benefit

At least eating beef, I think I’ll quit

 

Then there’s no problem if they say

“We tested and found horse DNA”
