A Satanic alchemy

A Satanic alchemy turns…

Whales into lipsticks,

Elephants into pianos,

Fish into fertilizer,

Seahorses into ‘novelty’ key-rings,

Dogs into urban ‘weapons.’

A Satanic alchemy turns…

Foxes into coats,

Bears into ceremonial hats,

Crocodiles into handbags,

Kangaroos into football boots,

Rabbits into fashion accessories.

A Satanic alchemy turns…

Chickens into ‘nuggets,’

Turkeys into ‘drumsticks,’

Lambs into ‘kebabs,’

Pigs into ‘hotdogs,’

Cows into ‘burgers.’

A Satanic alchemy regards…

Wild beings as ‘quarry,’

The sentient as ‘livestock’

The living as ‘commodities.’

The conscious as ‘experimental subjects,’

A sacred soul as future excrement.

A Satanic alchemy turns…

Morality into expedience,

Ethics into exploitation,

Conscience into capital,

Empathy into indifference,

And heaven into hell.
