Animal Byproducts

Shearing sheep? We’ll go one better:
Squeeze a worm to make a sweater!
Who’s the genius who decided
Hey, that worm’s got silk inside it!
Let’s make
negligees with that!
Also, sheets and grandpa’s hat.

Human creativity’s
Astonishing: We’re eating cheese
That’s moldy milk from some cow’s udder!
(If there isn’t mold, it’s butter.)
Feeling peckish? Grab your pet
And squeeze, then tell me what you get.
If you’re lucky, you can make
An outfit and perhaps a steak
Or side dish; if you’re not, don’t pout,
The doc can buff those scratches out.
My calico won’t trust me, now.
(I’m asking Santa for a cow.)
