Slurry

Overhead in deep laden vats

It churns daily, hourly, minute by minute

Flowing lifeblood

Putrid orange dripping down exposed piping

Bubbling and thick

Setting fast puddle on the concrete floor

Pumped at ninety pounds per square inch

We are thankful

To have work in these trying times

Delicious, quality product

Fill a hundred bags a minute

Now ten more

Now twenty

Safety here is paramount

Slide carefully quickly across slick oiled floor

Downtime is loss

Gracious to inhale that deathly sickly sweet stench

Of production
