“Shergar burger” Anna Chen with a prescient poem about what’s in your burger

Tescos, Burger King and now Waitrose have been caught in the adulterated food scandal where up to 29 per cent of some burgers have been found to contain horsemeat. Less worrisome than the squeamishness about eating my friend Flicka is the obvious problem that racehorse flesh will contain various cancer-causing nasties injected over careers shorter and sadder than the average X-Factor winner.

Here I am at the St Ives festival reading “Burger” (at 1m 30s) about the unpleasant things that can happen to your fast food.

Soylent grins from the veggies all round.
