This is a poem by a poet I’ve been following for some time, and I just love it! Though I’m a vegetarian, the metaphor was not lost on me…quite the opposite. I was enchanted. Please enjoy Rural Poet’s fine poem.

    • Gotcha, Peter. Me, too. I have a weak stomach and heart when it comes to blood being shed, and yet when my son-in-law hunts in Alaska to feed his family, I do understand. That’s the culture up there and it always has been. I’m the odd one out. Still, RP chose a fitting metaphor for us poets, I think. We do shed blood (and sweat bullets) when it comes to our craft sometimes. ❤
