THERE’S NO RAVEN IN RAVENOUS

there’s no raven in ravenous

there’s no ham in hamburgers
there’s no meat in mincemeat
there’s no dog in hotdogs
there’s no dick in spotted dick

there’s no bread in sweetbread
there’s no sweet in sweetcorn
there’s no corn in unicorn 
there’s no cock in spatchcock

Last night we talked for a full five minutes
about that hot dog stand in Reykjavík
the [in]famous one down in 101
‘Metallica’s favourite’ you said I crave
five more for my face in Icelandic rain
