Forbidden Ritual

It seems to me a Primordial
and profoundly religious Act
to eat the heart of your enemy -
or indeed your best friend.
Why do you who so thoughtlessly
eat the horrible
terror-tissue of exhausted animals
trundled in their thousands and penned
at an abattoir near you think the deed,
the ceremony so terrible ?
Maybe to accept it you also need
statues, mihrab or a thurible.

The thoughtless think that such gew-gaws
are necessary - alongwith
education, armies, property and fences,
locks and keys, elections, leaders,
heterosexual monogamy,
endurance, employment,
eating meat, and being breeders...
