Coffee Luwak

Gianyar and  Bangli  highways

areas where we

can experience the production

of Civet Cat Coffee

a weird and frenzied excretion

sold to us as great

the wildness and collection

that coffee connoiseurs rate


these wild nocturnal Civet Cats

consume the ripest cherries, they

then excrete the berries

which in the jungle lay

collecting them is time consuming

called cats but not cats

actually Mammalia and Bali apparently

is where the excreted beans are

made into a rich coffee.


a discharge from a wild soul

is apparently

richer by far and thus a star

in enjoying  true coffee

some 15 years they walk

the earth in wildness they proclaim

and are trapped and caged

and locked down

until they go insane.


its an evilm,  nasty trade

where lies are told each day

sales literature is often false

the civet cats they pay

held in filthy wire cages

that so destroy their feet

these nocturnal beings

are exploited in the heat


human beings begin to realise

being locked down

freedom to roam,  curtailed

in their frustration drowned

madness of persuasion

that escape is on the cards

prisoners of commerce

ignored even by bards.


wild markets become a breeding ground

for pandemics, worldwide

taking advantage of wildness

from dark down deep inside

taking profound control and

where high profit is the thing

where the evil eye

is seen on high

and the coffee then they bring


into the peoples orbit

this so called wild true breed

that  roams alone through forests

where life and spirit lead

the collection of excretions

though difficult can be

added to the arabica

and sold exclusively.


tourists sold as special

wrongheadedness to me

drinking animal excretions

Such culpability

how can that be normal

its wicked through and through

appealing to the  unpardonable

the iniquitous, who do

take aboard these lies

and go along with it

and buy

into what is cruelty

underneath the sky.


wet markets and pandemics

what we understand

is weakened tormented animals

their life paths just not planned

godly pursuits apparent

not so anymore

obduracy and utter greed

and heartless at their core


What is insatiability

indulgence yes and more


pleasurer of the taste buds

Good and raw

taken in by banter

by puffing and the like

peddling a sick  ideal

a rather rotten spike


as for our true consciousness

to be taken in as such

bound up in trasgression

so way out of touch

its surely impermissable

irregular and wrong

coffee beans and excrement

can never belong


In a dietary programme

its wicked to be sure

mendacious and deceitful

drinking more and more

of this Indonesian excrement

being duped  and led astray

by extremes and immoderation

at a price no one should pay
