Foie Gras - Artwork and poem by Rory Flynn - SHSO Leeds

They’ll prise open your jaw

Like ducks filled for foie gras

They’ll give you some pills

To digest the filth

Fatten you up

Consume your insides

Suck up the lies

Suck up the deceit

Keep your receipt

There’ll be no repeat

They’re taking control 

Of all of your souls

If we don’t escape

They’ll catch it on tape

And then well be fucked

Like those poor little ducks…


And when this is over

They’ll build a wall at Dover

And here is our empire.

  1. I admire the poetic romance but, as a vegan, I feel that the duck is under represented. While we fight the corporation, and the injustices that go with it, we shouldn’t forget the beauty of the duck in its finest form. Quacking!

    1. Hi Phil, thanks for your thought-provoking comments. Ducks are beautiful creatures and I feel your pain of the injustices of said bird. If only they could speak English, or if we had some kind of quack-translator so we could know what they are really thinking, the world would be a better place, I’m sure.
