And call the cattle home,
And call the cattle home,
Across the sands of Dee.'

And all alone went she.

- Anthem for Doomed Youth
What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?
Only the monstrous anger of the guns.
Only the stuttering rifles' rapid rattle
Can patter out their hasty orisons.
No mockeries now for them; no prayers nor bells,
Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs
The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells;
And bugles calling for them from sad shires.
- Wilfred Owen
- If we must Die
If we must die, let it not be like hogs
Hunted and penned in an inglorious spot,
While round us bark the mad hungry dogs,
Making their mock at our accursed lot.
- Claude McKay

Snakes Eat Frogs.
Hogs Eat Snakes.
Men Eat Hogs.

- God tempers the wind to the shorn lamb.
- Laurence Sterne
We're poor little lambs who've lost our way,
Baa! Baa! Baa!
We're little black sheep who've gone astray,
Gentlemen-rankers out on the spree,
Damned from here to Eternity,
God ha' mercy on such as we,
Baa! Yah! Bah!
- Rudyard Kipling
- Of all the quadrupeds that we know, the hog appears to be the be the foulest, the most brutish, and the most apt to commit waste wherever it goes. The defects of its figure seems to influence seems to influence its dispositions: all its ways are gross, all its inclinations are filthy, and all its sensations in a furious lust, and so eager a gluttony, that it devours indiscriminately whatever it comes across.
