****Ffed up on fleshH****

"How greatly does a man disgrace himself,
how impiously does he prepare himself
for shedding human blood, who with a knife
cuts the calf's throat and offers a deaf ear
to its death-longings! who can kill the kid
while it is sending forth heart rending cries

like those of a dear child; or who can feed
upon the bird which he has given food.

How little do such deeds as these fall short
of actual murder? Yes, where will they lead?
