And some wad eat that want it;
But we hae meat, and we can eat,
And sae the Lord be thankit.“

Kontext: The symbolism of meat-eating is never neutral. To himself, the meat-eater seems to be eating life. To the vegetarian, he seems to be eating death.

La gente mangia carne e pensa: "Diventerò forte come un bue".

Mangiarsi con gusto un animale è assassinio premeditato a scopo di libidine. Digerirlo, occultamento di cadavere.
