Silly Poem – To Be Eaten

A response to Joseph Auslander’s poem: In Envy of Cows


Why poeticize about the non-life of a cow,

and why the envy?

As the cow tastes the edge of August,

it licks at the knife edge –

that turns the flavour of lush pastures

into offal.

Tongue fed to the September dogs that


nipped at her ankles,

before being cruelly wrenched                        away

from their autumn

Silly-Savvy Poem – Fully Flipped

Savvy Book – Giving a F**k

Published by The Silly-Savvy Salopian

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
