Dichotomy 1&2

Dichotomy 1

Back, back I say

to the cat who's after my dinner

She meows and looks pathetic

knows a juicy prawn I'll eventually give her

On a street not too far from here

a child hunting through a bin

is cursed and chased away

for hunger and begging are society's sin

The cat sleeps on the porch

as the child in tears runs by

The earth revolves once more

as the sun sets in the sky


Dichotomy 2

In the east a child hits a cat on the head

and guts and skins and fillets

In the west the idea of eating our friends

would cause epicurean melees
