Cannibalism

Audio

Filipe Fernández-Armesto
Says that cannibalism was common.
So try some Italian with pesto,
Or Japanese served over ramen.

Seems our ancestors, not for survival,
But to be more enduring or great,
On the death of some mentor or rival
Would help themselves to a big plate.

The holy communion procedure
Is a symbolic cannibal act.
It's the blood and the body they feed ya,
Though we tend to lose sight of this fact.

So if you throw a banquet or dinner
To acknowledge some award or honor,
Don't be shocked if the herd just gets thinner
When your party is catered by Donner.
