283 – Noah’s Abattoir

Poem number 283
.
Noah’s Abattoir
.
The animals went in two by two, huzzah! Huzzah!
The cats and the dogs and the monkeys too, huzzah! Huzzah!
The horses and sheep and donkeys and cows
The hogs and the deer and the goats and the sows
And they all went into the dark
And never saw daylight again.
.
The animals came out vacuum packed in a box, huzzah!
Ribs and steaks and shoulders and chops, huzzah! Huzzah!
Ribs and steaks and shoulders and chops
A pipe takes away all the blood and the slops
And they all came out of the dark,
Packaged and put on a train.
.
The animals speed through the countryside, huzzah! Huzzah!
Destined for butchers both far and wide, huzzah! Huzzah!
The chops and the steaks and the spare ribs too
The train whistles loud as it brings them to you
I’ll have mine grilled, served with a sauce
I’ll never go hungry again.
