Anthropomorphism
 
Two pigs copulate above
The legend “Makin’ Bacon”;
 
A lobster sports a chef’s cap,
beckons with big red claw;
 
Literate turkeys carry signs:
“This Thanksgiving try some pork!”
 
Thug-like beetles gasp, cry “Raid!”
then die a histrionic death;
 
Charley Tuna, ego-driven,
tries to set the hook himself;
 
How grateful must these creatures be
made members of our family.

(1996)
