 Fox cull

 

In the bins of London are foxes,

hundreds of them, healthy and well-fed

on junk food.

Stalking through gardens

mauling babies

congregating together and attacking old women

ripping the throats out of Vicars and Priests,

bombing the Houses of Parliament

and setting fire to the House of Lords.

Eating charity workers,

breaking into Buckingham Palace

setting up a guillotine

and beheading the royal family.

Climbing up Big Ben

and detonating themselves one by one

sleek furry limbs flying everywhere

until the whole of London is on fire.
