The acrid smell of iodine in the air
The gentle look of knowing in your stare
The words you say, so sweet, betraying nothing of your aims
An appetite so rare

The scalpel sits so readily displayed
The strips of gauze with stitching like a maze
The pain I feel so quickly is assuaged
Now on to the next phase


I’ll nod right off before you even know
Perhaps there’s still a chance you’ll let me go
The wounds are deep, but hope’s still running true
Please say it isn’t so
