Ode To My Heart

Heart, you’re so important,
You’re known all world round.
Are you pink or are you red?
The answer can’t be found.

You could be a symbol of love,
Or some grotesque medical thing.
Werewolves find you delectable
You make them howl and sing.

When two people split,
You shatter and break
You are how every human’s chest can ache.

Heart, o’ heart,
We love you so.
Please, o’ please heart
Don’t ever go.

Fire On A Poem

I flick the match
Watched flame take hold
Small fire dazzled before my eyes
I took paper in my hand
Watched flame leap upon the page
Fire grew eating away
Yellow, reds and orange fire ravaged paper
Until just before it reached the hand
I dumped it in cold water to extinguish flame
Now, how to recall poem written upon the page

“Dead man lying by the side of the road
with the sunlight in his eyes.” – song2

“Two surgeons just lost it.

“One stopped working on the guy in front of us and walked over
to the side of the tent and started hitting his leg with a hammer
until he broke it.

“The other just walked over to the corner of the tent
and screamed ‘Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ.’
He left that day and never came back.”

I wonder how MASH ever was funny.
