Loved Only For Their Parts

 

*

The Romans cut out

nightingale tongues..

They could then no longer sing.

All countries murder

chickens.

They can't fly without their wings.

Footnote:

In ancient Rome nightingale tongues

were a delicacy.

Chickens can fly to lower branches

using their wings. Perhaps their ability

to fly higher has been destroyed by millennia

of selective breeding and confinement
