Joining up the dots

i.
What is it about the death of beauty
that upsets you so?

A dentist slays a lion

(the evil bastard!)

and you weep and weep and weep
until your tears
dissolve the pastry
on your pork pie

ii.
pigs:
unluckily unbeautiful.

iii.
There once was a piglet named Cecil.
No one gave a shit.

Hi Mark. This is a little tricky... so if Cecil ended up as pie filling then he must have been digested and then someone... is this what you're not saying?

Hi Mark T

The shit is purely idiomatic.

Hey, I'd weep for Cecil the Pig, too.

RIP Cecil.

Especially when you rub their little bellies. Ever done that?
