POEM: Coughing Up Blood

tb-national-libary-of-medicine1927inset.jpg

Reuben coughs up some blood

And then goes back to sleep

Blood?

Are you sure it wasn’t a gummy bear?

No

Reuben doesn’t eat gummy bears

But he does sustain himself

On the blood

Of your unborn thoughts

What a senseless monster!

Has anyone got a stake

I could drive through his crotch

So we can all be rid

Of this menace?
