Anchored by its feet hangs the carcass
Butcher removes brisket and strings it
Chuck steak diced for stews and pies
Dark well matured silverside rests
Entrails give the dogs a royal feast
Flank minced for spaghetti bolognese
Gullet chopped into stock pot simmers
Hanging meat swings as the butcher works
Icy still from the blast chiller
Juicy steaks thickly cut are parcelled up
Kebabs skewered, placed on display
Loin of beef neatly lined up
Minced steak patties for burgers
Neck used in both stock pot and stew
Offal set aside for pate and pies
Perfectly roasted beef ready to carve
Quick flash fry of rib eye seals in juices
Rump  not too trimmed dribbles on grill
Sirloin anointed by a king sizzling
Tongue gently braised in gravy or stock
Utensils casting shadows on the wall
Venison from red deer's makes tasty things
Wing rib rubbed with hot spices waits
Xhosa cattle graze in pastures green
Yellowed meats set aside for soup
Zibeline hides scrapped and cured, nailed up

    Shadow, would you believe if I told you I was a vegetarian when I was young. Forced to eat meat, after refusing to eat it at the dinner table. Eating meat was against all the morals I held in life at such a young age. However, after the age of 20, I had to adjust, because meat was a part of life.:) Don't worry, I'm not a barbarian. I only eat processed meat. COW especially and bacon. So in an apocalypse, I'd make a bad zombie. Anyways, I like this abc meat dance. I'll stick to bacon burgers. PD

    Wonderful! Very well done and easy to see an entire Butcher Shop by "Z". Favorite line that made me hungry, "Quick flash fry of rib eye seals on juices"
