pigs, ducks, chicken and cattle shrieked and tore the sky into two.
blood flood the kitchen floor
women smelled of grease and garlic
bottles are emptied
bowels are cleared
morning air, stayed like a drunkard's breath
christ is up in the air
sermons are given and doors closed
churchyard quite and strewn with color rags
at home, food, laughter and howls started
family feuds are renewed for the coming year
then people strayed out
ducked the police on the streets.
Happy Easter was a Drunken Roar.
