They live beneath the ruined city call the subways home

anxiously wait to see the sun and a land as of yet unknown

gone below to escape the death of the nuclear winter

ice and darkness due penance for the sinners

six generations 200 years later

their ancestors crawl from their holes

hungry and frightened and barely surviving

they're tired of living like moles

up on the surface a fate worse

than dying meeting the end of the food chain

teeth yielding pain

I sense that living human beings dwell below my feet

an important source of protein, you are what you eat

post Armageddon, neo-barbaric,

the nuclear warriors due battle

to satiate our hunger we breed human beings as cattle

hunting in packs ready for the attack

we eat our prey raw-rabid animals

frothing and ripping the carcass

we're stripping our own yes we're cannibals

eat or eaten beat or beaten

I am on my life rest assure a predator

broken splintered bones, boiling blood

torn and bleeding skin

blackened burning flesh melting fat

amputated limbs

eviscerated, lungs torn out

heart ripped from the chest

decapitated, a meal of

vagina and breasts

Eyes plucked from sockets, gaping holes

through which picking brains

phlebophilia love of blood

life spills from the veins

I detect the scent of prey by

her menstruation

you have been chosen the main course
