Cruising out the back of beyond I spied

a mob of brahmans they caught me by surprise

‘a bit far from home in India’ was my thought


Quite out of context in such a rural setting

but their purpose became evident when locals

boasted that this was the beef capital of Australia


No not the Hindu vedic kind, no thread or caste

four legged imports purely for breeding purposes

to enhance our meat production, horrific to me


Killing fields as the abattoir is their main industry

other agricultural businesses but mostly meat based.

Could a veggo like me be accepted in this outlandish place?
