Half-haves and half-have-notsConsider dining on a human brain.
Not impossible in culinary terms...
Rogan Josh sauce? Wasabi to life the finer flavoured tones?
Lobotomising is nearly passé, and
cannibalism almost archaic.
Brains may desire acts of sacrificial devouring.
Who's to say, once
the occupant's retired from passing electrical
activity throughout it's network?
There's seldom much wiggle-room in suggesting
cannibalism in jest or earnestness.
Culturally, taboos abound.
Frontal lobes are off the menu, pre-theatre, à la carte
Consider a snack comprised of two halves; creative
and logical...could a spoonful of braised brain from
both sides taste differently. Less peppery?
The soul does not inhabit the neurological domain.
A hefty organ by anyone's set of scales.
High maintenance and fond of generous hydration.
An underlain blanket of sesame seed toast,
thin slices of the grey-coral matter.
Arguably, there's intelligent thinking in eating
the hollowed-out content of an disused head.
Redundant craniums should be filling the protein
shortfall fast becoming a global development issue.
Vegetarians and vegans should have no more problem
with this poem than anyone else.
Half-haves and half-have-notsNo animals were harmed in the writing of this
public information piece.
The campaign may have begun here, but it's
now down to you righteous people out there.
