'What a load of Rubbish',
Screamed the Brazilian Farmer,
as he threw pieces of flayed meat,
to the starving masses in the Favela's.

'Come and get em',
Bellowed the Asian butcher,
as he strung up another fatty carcus,
along the Human meat rack.

'Fresh from the city today',
retorted the African Farm worker,
as he tried to pawn some fatty leg pieces,
to a small poxed peasant by the roadside.

And so the cries arose,
for the time had come,
to CUT down, and up,
the fat cat flatulent fraudulent pigs,
and to give the poor their share,
