Modern omphaloskepsis

What would the naturalist hunter-gatherer
think of us force feeding ourselves newfangled
alchemy so that we might function when all he needs
is a blood sacrifice and an ancestral totem?

Which is the insane man, the naked bastard
eating the heart of a cow, its blood congealed
like rubber around the valves, or the man
sitting on his sofa writing this piece disgruntled?
