Horses not Flies

I recall a post-apocalyptic poem featuring horses over at The Dabbler. Thanks go to Mrs Grubb: vegetarian, CND-supporting, pacifist, socialist English teacher from my comprehensive schooldays. On the other hand, she refused to teach Lord of the Flies owing to its bleak view of human nature.

We weren't allowed to read "Lord of the Flies" because a parent took one look at the title, read that it was about schoolboys and condemned it as a homosexualist tract.

So we read Dorian Gray instead.
