Anti-war poem
by Dermot Glennon

I’m working in a Chechen kitchen cooking chickens

Should I cook these chickens Szechwan or Cajun

Just catching chickens coshing ‘em and chucking ‘em in a casserole in a Chechen kitchen’s clearly incorrect

As is choking chickens and chopping ‘em up with chips

Chief chef in a Chechen kitchen is a difficult affair

So I’ll move to Czech republic and be chief chicken chef out there

I would be chuffed to be chief chicken chef in a Czechoslovakian kitchen

Because Chechnya is a pain in the arse to say

And anyway damn this confounded war… thing
