11th September 2015

Chicken cooked in its own fat,
Although delicious,
Is insidiously in the long run a booby trap
Designed to control population growth
By eventually choking off the arterial gap
By means of plaque or sludge or both
As commonly found in clogged pipes
Accustomed to prolonged waste oil traffic
And such insoluble types
No matter how powerful the magic
Of witch doctors and medicine men
Who are  no better than mechanics
At replacing clogged pipes with new ones,
Cannibalized or otherwise.
