Pyre

Scrotum necked poultry

Baleful bovine eyes

Gristly arthritic rumps

Dribbling madness, influenza

Scabbed pigs and clotted sheep

With festering foot and running mouths

Get your two for one

Roasted toasted on the fields

Cloven hooves, charred soot feathers

On grainy ashen winds

Pre-emptive cull policy

Infested farm incineration
