If I were to walk my own talk I would become a vegetarian Eating animals is cruel And it's the single way that I contribute most to global warming So Why don't I become a vegetarian? If I were to walk my own talk I wouldn't love buying things Because I love buying things At least I'm supposed to So I do, and I do. I know well that I feed the machine That denies food to so many Aspiring consumers. That thought sickens me. With that in mind How can I justify Buying So much Shit? If I were to walk my own talk I would have more gay friends And African-American friends And friends that aren't all white Because all of my friends are white Not that it matters But it does, kind of. Look, I'm a progressive, Genuinely appalled by inequality etc. Why do I exhibit the same Homophilic tendencies That I speak out against? If I were to walk my own talk I would be an activist An active activist. As in, I would act Not just talk I already talk a lot The power of activism has been proven And I'm sure as hell that I want things to change So why am I not An activist? If I were to walk my own talk I wouldn't ever swear It's the language of marginalization I wouldn't complain about schoolwork 6.7% of the world has a college degree I wouldn't wear leather It's fueling a sadistic industry I wouldn't drive a car It's fueling a sadistic industry I wouldn't be complacent I wouldn't sit idly I wouldn't take it for granted I wouldn't get discouraged I wouldn't get hung up by the immensity of it all I wouldn't feel very, very small So small that I don't even matter A seven-billionth of the population What good can I do? What harm can I do? What can I do? Maybe I'll become a vegetarian.
