A Poetry Sporadical of Repeating Forms

Duck Duck Goose

by Jennifer Litt

It’s no child’s play, no Mardi Gras,
to become foie gras.
Water fowls’ force-fed livers
for gourmet dinners
through the process of gavage
is a fate too savage.
Protesters of this carnage
demand protection for the ducks
and geese. Gourmands, you’re out of luck.
To become foie gras for gourmet dinners is a fate too savage.
