[Herd Immunity]

 by J. P. Seabright

                   containment camps

    keep us safe

   protect           from wind     rain


           corrugated hangar

    small pens              metal

    low troughs

         food      other for faeces

Water and piss                   in plastic bottles

                   resemble each other

    taste      [the] same

      given a number

    luckiest              the middle

                   exposed to     elements

                     greatest chance [of] warmth      survival

               built for cattle

    breeding                       into burgers

            died of           madness

                [we] do the same
