BUTCHERING
[ Also see Animals Eating Occupations ]

Whoe'er has gone thro' London street,
  Has seen a butcher gazing at his meat,
    And how he keeps
      Gloating upon a sheep's
        Or bullock's personals, as if his own;
          How he admires his halves
            And quarters--and his calves,
              As if in truth upon his own legs grown.
      - Thomas Hood, A Butcher

Who finds the heifer dead and bleeding fresh
  And sees fast-by a butcher with an axe,
    But will suspect 'twas he that made the slaughter?
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part II
         (Warwick at III, ii)

Why, that's spoken like an honest drovier. So they sell bullocks.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Much Ado About Nothing
         (Benedick at II, i)

The butcher in his killing clothes.
      - Walt Whitman, The Workingmen
         (pt. VI, st. 32)
