what walks on all fours?
is served with mince sauce?
& gives us warmth that we can wear?
mutton dressed in wool of course
those sheep you counted as you fell asleep
were goaded to the abattoir
it was a nightmare
something I ate
wake up carnivores
try to relate
creature in field
with meat on the plate
all states of being intermesh
you can take an animal
& call it livestock if you like
sunday roast is still dead flesh
tell the little children straight
that baa-lamb they AAH at
that frisks so prettily in play
will end up on their forks one day
