Anatomy Limerick

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started writing poetry on Hubpages back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.


As every good Anatomist knows

that a collection of tissue shows

how each organ will work.

Being dropped by a stork

affected how our lymph and blood flows.

We have categorized each system

a collection of organs rhythm

a system of support

an epidermis fort

starts middle of chest near the sternum.

We use cellular respiration

along with kidney for excretion,

a name for each bronchi,

our guts and their villi,

our varied bones, quite a collection.

These sympathetic trunks hold our nerves,

our inferior pelvis for curves.

Well within boundaries

smooth muscle arteries,

a quick movement as our hip joint swerves.
