Man awakes to chicken in brain
Laying filthy eggs of pain
He'll drink
He'll pop
Take painkillers galore
But all the while
The pain he'll deplore

We can infer from the lexis 'deplore' that the author of such a verse feels strongly about subject matter of 'pain'. Meanwhile, the 'chicken' within the work, must surely be symbolic for Western civilisation's obsession with consumerism: the eggs of pain being the products of a consumeristic and capitalist culture.
