Selections From The Ark Number 210 - Autumn 2008

Victims
by Liam Brophy

  O Lamb of God, Who trembled in the cold
Under the slicing sharpness of the snows,
Be mindful of the knifed and quivering flesh
Of tortured animals, and of all those
That, living sacrifices of manís power,
Die in unutterable throes.

O little hunted One Whom Herodís hounds
Pursued towards Egypt, shed your pity too
On all the hunted creatures of the earth
That bestial men for pleasure still pursue
To mangled deaths; in some unmenaced place
Upgather them unhurt to You.

Liam Brophy
The Ark No. 98.
