The Bulls Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 5

Sponsored Links

Six bulls I saw as black as jet,

With crimsoned horns and amber eyes

That chewed their cud without a fret,

And swished to brush away the flies,

Unwitting their soon sacrifice.

It is the Corpus Christi fête;

Processions crowd the bannered ways;

Before the alters women wait,

While men unite in hymns of praise,

And children look with angel gaze.

The bulls know naught of holiness,

To pious pomp their eyes are blind;

Their brutish brains will never guess

The sordid passions of mankind:

Poor innocents, they wait resigned.

Till in a black room each is penned,

While from above with cruel aim

Two torturers with lances bend

To goad their fieriness to flame,

To devil them to play the game.

The red with rage and mad with fear

They charge into the roaring ring;

Against the mockery most near

Of human might their hate they fling,

In futile, blind blood-boltering.

And so the day of unction ends;

Six bulls are dragged across the sand.

Ferocity and worship blends,

Religion and red thirst hold hands . . .

Dear Christ! 'Tis hard to understand!
