In Full Support of Vegetarianism

Murray Rose, he was a winner,

Swam his way with greens for dinner


Gem of a bodybuilder, Bill Pearl

With vegeteranism his destiny unfurled


PT Usha our Indian star

Lived on Idli, dosa, sambar


Milka Singh, whom we all have heard

Was also a lover of milk and curd,


Bill Picking also chose to pick

Pulses for proteins and vegetable sticks


Power lifter, Pat Reeves,

Preferred to eat vegetables with cheese


Rob Bigwood, an arm wrestler,

Became a vegan and an animal lover,


Brian, Jamie, Forest, all pros on skates

Believed in vegetarianism and that’s what they ate


The list just goes on and through

Across India, America and Peru


To prove that to be a star

You have to believe in what you are


It is not dominated by vegetables or meat

A healthy diet is what you need


Many a research has also pried

Vegetarians to live longer, fuller and active lives


More than the power of what your stomachs fill,

Is the power of your mind and strength of your will.
