My Son Loves Cows

He used to love hamburgers,
but now he loves cows
and is experiencing his first
serious moral dilemma
in his 9 years on Earth.
The last time we fired up the grill
he wept through the whole meal.
You don’t have to eat it, son;
on this occasion we WILL make
you something else. But he insisted
through the tears on finishing
that burger; so delicious
and so terrible.
