Toxic! - Poem by James Hart

TOXIC! said the sign on the bottle of acid
DO NOT DRINK ME – TOXIC!

TOXIC! said the sign on the tin of polish
DO NOT EAT ME – TOXIC!

TOXIC! said the sign on the drum of paraffin
DO NOT TOUCH ME – TOXIC!

Now the OED says toxic means poison
So why apply it to humans?

Said with open hand upturned
And a growling noise?

He’s TOXIC! She’s TOXIC! !
They’re TOXIC!
