Tell me if the salad is tasty. It gets quite soggy with a bloody steak. Poking the flagstone of dead flesh From the slow side of the stampede, The leaking juices form a cold puddle Of post-life, hoisting olive-oil Skimmers around like Jolly-dancing pall bearers. Can you feel the beat that they rock to? It flattened that poor heifer Into a pallid schnitzel To go with my filament fries And gallons of pinking mayo.
