    Following my visit to the men who intend to mess about with my gall bladder


    A Brief Note For My Surgeons

    I shall not mark it as some
    dark depravity
    When you delve deep in my
    abdominal cavity
    Come cut me!
    Slash me!
    Slice me as you will.
    Let those voracious scalpels
    drink their fill.
    But please remember
    when you've done the deed
    to put back any organs I still need

    For this one small advice I must impart
    A poet cannot write without a heart.
