This Is Veganism
by Chuck Adams

milk will kill me,
or so I have been told
by self-proclaimed
radical anarchist vegan
freedom fighters
compensating for
upper middle class
upbringing and enrollment
at expensive private
universities by residing
in poverty stricken
neighborhoods and
helping out the locals
by refusing to
eat dairy

i am quite fond
of milk,
and find vegans
to be generally frail
as a result
of a diet
low in protein
and high in
potato chips

in a state of anarchy,
i hope to find
milk consumption
to be among the
most basic freedoms
