Behind The Dark Door - Poem by jerry hughes

'of cardio-vascular surgery'

Uncertainty coupled by trepidation.
'Aye, don't worry lad, its all done by
fookin' marrgic now! '
'No more open chest surgery.'

It's just like putting a patch on a
bicycle tube - only easier.
A stent placed in position via
the groin, or keyholed in. Voila!

'You speak from experience? '
'Nah, I saw it done on Google.'
'On Google you say? '
'Yeah.'
'Shyte, that's reassuring.'

    This is so hilarious, although a sensitive subject. You have still got your sense of humour Jerry, which is the most important thing. Loved this one enormously.

    If I wasn't feeling quite so 'uncertain' myself right now, I'd smile at this clever and succinct piece of irony. The medical industry leaves us with the comfortable feeling that they have answers for everything - though somehow the grim reaper still has a habit of turning up when the time is right. For my part, I believe with all my 'heart' there's life in the old dog yet. love Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    There is a high art in reducing mystery to the mundane without losing mistique and intrigue - you do it rather well. Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply

    Seems you can find anything on the internet nowadays - even cardiovascular surgery! Great to know that this video game generation is using their talents in the operating room now. Heaven knows - they spend enough time in front of the screen growing up to become pros at just about anything! Best to you, Jerry.......

    this would be funny if thee wasn't a grain of truth in it, everyone seems to be thinking they can do anything these days after reading a manual, liked it
