Once, while chewing on a piece of meat,
I felt a weird grumbling in my feet
Pointing towards a numbing in my gut

And it occurred to me,
That middle class societies,
Increase their intake of pork and veal,

Not so much as tasty and tantalising meals,
But mores as a kind of medicinal insobriety
Covering up aching flesh-wounds of spiritual anxiety.
