The Order of the Dung Beetle Sticker
my good friend Seth Wieck wrote this poem
Gavel gather our Order of the Dung Beetle.
Convene the turd rollers who work the earth’s treadle.
Six-footed levers reciprocate their treasures—
outcast,fall off and waste—our disgust, their pleasures
in spheres composed of compost, rumen, and seed germ,
chewed straw rechewed and strewn clear of lofted tails.
Firmpellets on which they dance and feed their lowlyyoung.
Dung Beetle priests atone, make our shit holy.
