Dear Ones,

Here is a new poem for you, about an event that … I am pleased to convey … did not take place in the year 2016, in Red Rock Canyon State Park, Santa Clarita, California, fairly close to where I live …

CANNIBAL SONG: THE 29-FLAVOR BARBECUE … aka OGREISH STEW
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett

Words

Where do you put a cannibal kid?
Into a pot and under a lid?

Is it the ego, or maybe the id?
What could be broke in the cannibal kid?

How do you figure a cannibal’s bile
Relates to the things you consider worthwhile?

What do you say to the cannibal’s guile
When the charming man says, with a toothsome smile,

“Will you drop by my place for a while?
“I make a mean meatloaf. I’ll do it in style!”

What, oh what will that ogre make you?
People tartare. or cannibal stew
Or 29-flavor barbecue?

Shall we eschew, or hie ourselves nigh
That camo cook with a cloaked banzai?

Consider what might be required of the guest
And just say no! to that wry guy’s jest.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Pasquinade

Anthropophagy Is definitely
Not this poetess’ cup of tea!
