Sacrifice

Blood and guts
Of feted lamb
Basks in fire
Too sacred for ram

Sow the seed
To reap the oat
Prepare the bowl
And bleed the goat

Shatter the alters
Douse the pyres
Shelter the best
Offer filth and liars

Murderous, monstrous
The buthcer cleaves
Bundled and sold
To clutching thieves

Oven and furnace
Pit and pyre
All life is cycled
In the belly of fire
