A Poet's Autopsy - Humorous Poem

Poem by M. Asim Nehal

A young poet died
Reason unknown, doctors bemused
Biologically, nothing was wrong
Heart was functioning properly
Lungs had no infections
Last lipid profile was d*mn good
Other laboratory results were within range
No head or body injury
No heart attack trails,
then what could be the cause of this sudden death?
The mystery was buzzing around the medical world
to write something in autopsy report as cause of death.

And then emerged another poet with some unusual complaints
And all doctors shifted their prime focus on him
May be they can relate something or may get some clue
The complaints he had was acute shortage of ideas
Lack of creative imaginations,
Evasive dreams and to top all, painless thoughts
Feeling suffocative even with maximum oxygen around
Feeling lifeless even with normal heartbeats
Unable to converse even with brain functioning properly
Blood circulation customary, digestive system churning food.

The Autopsy report completed with findings:

“Sudden attack of imagenaria forced soul to vacate body causing nonfunctioning of biological body”

    Wonderful: silly humour is cheap and easy, but yours is 'dark grey', possibly downright 'black' humour, and this is more difficult to pull out succesfully.(Report)Reply
