THE CUTTING TASK

Emerald scrubs melt in jade light

Room shifts fuzzes all around

In my hazed out trembling sight

 

Needle enters I have drowned

Gushing liquid through my veins

Ears fill throbbing squelching sound

 

Weighted limbs tied up in chains

Surgeon inhales beryl mask

Scalpel raised each muscle strains

 

Slices in begins his task

Plenty blood to fill the cask
