If you are looking for hearts and flowers, then this collection is not for you. If you are looking for poetry that gives you a warm romantic glow, then again this collection is not for you. If on the other hand you are looking for works that are politically astute, and that explore the darker side of the human psyche, then this is most definitely the one for you.
This is not a collection for the faint hearted. The poems range from the politically motivated No One Mentions the Pigs, the poem from which the collection takes its title, to the unromantic view of love in Sappho's Legacy and Rose through to the dark look at the incestuous in Country Ways.
All of the poems carry a message, which is not always what one would expect from such a work. The poems are never obscure, and certainly never comfortable, but what they are is thought provoking, witty, emotionally involving and above all entertaining. A truly unique, colourful and powerful first collection from an exciting new poet full of insight, wit and wisdom. A rollercoaster read, so fasten your seatbelts and enjoy.
