heads of animals on walls

An appetite for wildlife they said.
hundreds of heads on the wall,
the smallest to the left,
the head of an ant
and on the right
the largest,
his finest kill,
stalked day and night for weeks,

finally brought to ground with a bazooka,
a steady hand and some luck:
the head of a great blue whale.

And in between them,
a cat –
a giraffe and
a couple of celebrity chefs
with eyes as black as the
finest caviar,
