Ode to Donald Watson – Founder of Veganism

There was a star geezer called Donald
Who had some ideas that he’d cobbled
Into a movement called vegan
To make all life more even
with torture and killing to be knobbled

It was during the war that he started
And off from the veggies he parted
Now 60 years later
He’s an illuminator
for the ethical, cool and kind hearted

Now vegan is kinder to people
(especially the plumper meat eater)
and it’s good for the planet
so shout it and spam it
and life could be so much more neater

Join with us on world vegan day
November 1st not 1st of May
With drinking and eating
And much celebrating
For success of a new vegan way
