In Vitro Meat Phenomenon (lyrics)

Nine years in the future:
“Would anyone like a meat loaf?”
“Sure I’d like a meat loaf”
“and what kind of meat would you like in it?
Your options are poultry, bovine or mariscos”
“Hey I’ll try the poultry”
“Excellent choice.”
“Synthetic?”
“Of course!”

In Vitro Phenomenon
In Vitro Phenomenon
In Vitro Phenomenon
In Vitro and never look back!

Cell differentiation
to mammalian muscle
Guided by the medium
or “growth factor”
or “nutrient broth”
wash, compress and texture
flavor, color, sterilize
before it’s thawed and eaten…
what do you call muscle
that never once flexed?

In Vitro Phenomenon
In Vitro Phenomenon
In Vitro Phenomenon
In Vitro and never look back!

Is it Karshrut if no beast is slaughtered?
But not completely animal-free
Cultured meat could it be some body?
A new delivery system for protein

In Vitro Phenomenon
In Vitro Phenomenon
Foretell Winston Churchill, appalled by bones and gristle
Prescient L. Ron Hubbard, feast on Chicken Little

To neo luddite with a pork fascination
Your small batch ain’t gonna do this time
How many pigs to feed eight and a half billion people?
The answer’s one. Sausage links!

In Vitro Phenomenon
In Vitro Phenomenon
In Vitro Phenomenon
In Vitro and never look back!
