Kobe beef syndrome

to feel uneasy is such a
bad feeling that I want to rip off
that suddenly to feel at ease
got me thinking of the beef bred
in Japan
put in a stall with massages and
classical music in attempt to make
its flesh so tender and expensive

Very striking as I have had the privilege to live in that culture. Perhaps I will try to find this famed Kobe beef as I haven't yet consciously hunted one down for a meal. We've had wagyu which I suppose is another famed beef variety of these islands.

There's a lesson to be learned here: those who put you at ease eventually may consume you.
