Some kinds of meat are quickly consumed, more easily
Others, not to everyone's taste, are more rubbery,
Chewed on by the eater
Till all of the juices
Nourish every drop of blood in his body,
Till he bleeds every piece white.
In response to the constant raking up of the beef ban controversy as part of political opportunism, specifically in the context of Dadri and UP elections.
