The Useful-ness of Flesh

We can't get enough,
even when its had
enough of us. Are you
looking for more?

First, a system of
measure: how red is
red; how sand-colored
is the limestone?

Next, a way to dissect:
cut along the outside
of the vein. Move aside
the body's organs.

Then, the uterus,
how much life has it
given; how flabby are
its muscles now?

Last, not least,
the issue of worthiness:
wool, steel or flesh,
which is more useful?
