Red Meat

Dear all

I know there has been a lot written about red meat this week. I am remaining skeptical of it all, rather arrogantly and ignorantly, because I think red meat is f–king brilliant! I love the stuff. I hear it makes you live for less time, but I guess I want to enjoy my life while I’m living it and eat what I like. In moderation of course. My mum once told me about a man who ate just carrotts and died. That’s silly and wasteful. To die of red meat or Dairy Milk or Crunchie Bars is far more interesting and entertaining to be engraved on your grave stone. Scientists are completely wrong and should learn to shut up when they have these silly ideas. Burger off. My mum is reading their vicious propaganda and hiding the bacon. I know there is the morality of killing animals, but that emotion quickly passes by when you have a slab of steak in your face. Anyway, here is an article written about the pros and cons of red meat  http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/is-meat-good-or-bad-for-us-425192.html.

Have a look at this picture to see if you can turn it down. Vegetarians may want to turn away.

Love it

Here is a poem that I wrote about the subject.

Red meat

I like to eat red meat,
I don’t care if it kills me,
Or my heart skips a beat.
I like the blood dripping down,
And the grease between my teeth,
Bacon, pork, steak or lamb,
They’re all worth the morbid grief.
So don’t read the salacious lies,
Enjoy the taste, take in the protein,
With a greasy serving, of curly fries.
 
El fin!

About Nicholas Rogers

I am an English journalist/copywriter living in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and I have been here since 2011. I originally came to work with Casa Alianza, which supports street kids and vulnerable youths. I then stayed on, after meeting Pamela Cruz Lozano, who calls me her adopted Catracho. I work freelance journalism and I have my own translation business. Why did I come here? For the challenge, to open my mind and get out of my comfort zone. I love literature and I've written a book with street kids. I write novels, short stories and poetry, all of which you will find on this blog, as well as a lot of information about Honduras. View all posts by Nicholas Rogers
