Almost if jacks way to prove himself to the others on the island especially Ralph, jack and his hunters start a gruesome chant that follows throughout the novel into their transformation to savagery.
Chapter 5 "What would a beast eat?" / "Pig." / "We eat pig." / "Piggy!" (golding 83). The boys are still afraid of a rumored “beastie” roaming the island. The fact that the beast eats pig is very significant and symbolic. The beast of who they speak is the boys or the evil within/inside the boys. It is the boys who kill Piggy you find out later in the novel. The boys sacrificed a pig to the beast you could say the beast does eat pig, metaphorically speaking.

There was a sudden bright explosion and corkscrew trail across the sky; then darkness again and stars (95) this comes immediately after Piggy hopes for a sign from the adult world to straighten things up
