Spoon: version 2 of Carl Sandburg's Soup

I saw a man screwing a goat,
I say he was rearing livestock.
Into the goats hole with a boom.
His name was in the newspaper,
As the cops came and took him away.
Thousands of people saw him do it,
Some even jerked off as they saw him play.
When I saw him, he was bending over,
And giving the goat a chance.
To put something up him.

It's a great poem. It means a lot. Carl Sandburg is a great poet.

A deceptively simple poem about perception, appearance and reality, class
and other things. It is fun to teach. Read Richard Cory by E.A. Robinson
for comparison and Spoon River Anthology by Edgar Lee Masters. We all put
our pants on the same way--one leg at a time
