Was Donald Pleasance a Vegan? – a song.

Donald Pleasence

won’t eat pheasants

now he’s dead;

and, when alive, he was a Vegan,

so he ate beans instead –

I may have made that up,

it’s the sort of thing I do,

I’m a writer, and a poet,

and a singer,

‘How d’you do?’

Plant-Based Poetry

The vegetables

sat at tables,

whilst the fruits

played their flutes;

when over,

the vegetables gave them a round of applause,

and the fruits bowed low.

The evening was a total success,

and there was very little mess –

which was nice to know.

Would you like…

a Butterbean Barley Buddha Bowl?

I’d like to be able to say it.

There’s a lady on the seashore, she sells them.

That figures.

I found a piece of paper (#VeganPoetry)

I found a piece of paper (#VeganPoetry)

I found a piece of paper

Just laying in the road

I read the words upon it

A message writ in code?

‘No Milk Today’

is what it did say –

but I espied

a Vegan message

hidden there

in plain sight.

What it meant was very clear,

‘No Milk Today….


or any year!’

Replacement Egg Service

Replacement Egg Service

Announcement: Would all passengers be aware that there is an ongoing replacement egg service between Penzance and Paddington; all onboard sandwiches that hithertofore before now were comprised of egg in any combination with cress, mayonnaise, salad cream, coleslaw, limp lettuce or thinly sliced carrot will be affected by this development. Could all travellers please be reminded that purchasers of any of our “egg” combination sandwiches will still be required to eat their purchases in Carriage E, where the air conditioning is currently working at a staggering 75% efficiency level. Thank you for listening, and please enjoy your journey.

My Vegan Poem

My Vegan Poem

My Vegan Poem

contains no owls

or cormorants;

but, it does contain vowels

and consonants –

it would look rather silly

with owls and cormorants in,

wouldn’t it?

“Veg an’ Two Veg, please?”

“Veg an’ Two Veg, please?”

When there is one last fish in an ocean,

One last cow in a field;

will the people then have a notion,

that the cost was worth more than the yield.

When there are no more Dodos in Tesco;

when a shamb shank is all that they sell;

when your mixed-up grill,

is just a mixed-up girl,

packing your biscuits in twos –


‘and the animals went

in two-by-twos…

… and there were none of them left in the morning’.

For plant-based food, that hits the spot,

try Kind in Looe, you’ll like what they’ve got.

Nutritional yeast,

it’s a beast of many horns –

no, only joking.

We received our Vegan Call-up.

We received our Vegan Call-up.

We received our Vegan wake-up

call in the post just yesterday;

now we use Vegan soap and Vegan make up

all the day;

our food habits have drastically changed,

our ideals have been totally rearranged;

we are not the people that once we were;

we don’t eat animals, we don’t wear fur,

our shoes are made of recycled plants;

and we don’t talk about it,

if given half a chance.
