Famished by Bruce McRae

On the menu is barbed wire

sautéed in heartless tyrannies.

The bloodied linens of the Visigoth.

Tongues of the vanquished, broiled,

with a side order of children sobbing.

And salads of inexpressible horrors.

Today’s menu includes bandage soup,

served drawn and quartered.

Knife pie, with a shotgun topping.

Visceral stew and smashed-mouth bread.

And the special, baked heads and hands,

which are, we think, to die for.
