Read introduction

I've been thinking about this incident since 2007.

Two floppy-eared lambs
Moved in next door
To chomp their way
Through the overgrown garden.

They had shared
Womb and placenta
And stayed inseparable,
Always side by side.

When all the scrub
Was converted to protein
One was killed
for a family celebration.

For long days
And hot tortured nights
The survivor wailed;
Until they killed him too.
