I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.
I choked on a lock of hair
Which made me gasped because of lack of air
I fell to the ground like a thrown spear
Flat like a broken car that needed a spare
The paramedics came and restored my soul
I felt like an old shoe that received a new sole.
The sound of people talking around me was music to my ear
Because i could have died choking on that lock of hair
I finally stood up and the crowd began to cheer
Then they told me to rest my legs so I sat on a mahogany chair
For a minute there I felt sunken like a pirate’s chest
As though a ship had landed on my chest.
Life scored a point today, death had none.
Ironic I was revived by a paramedic whose mother is a nun
Today was good for me, even though the Grim Reaper preyed
So I sent up one of my own, as I closed my eyes and Prayed.
