Cut the head off the baby giraffe
at the shoulders.
Wield the result like a club
against its mourning parents.
Break their legs and move on
to hanging the dogs.

Once the trees and washing lines
are full
ask your neighbour
'what is your favourite animal?'
Go out and find it,
find all of them.

Strangle the cats,
Shoot the horses
for not running fast enough,
break the necks of the swans,
freeze the hummingbird,
bleed the cattle dry,
pollute the sea.

Keep going
until only mankind is left
only then will you
be able to truly say
'I am bored.'
