Poem a day challenge #4 GSOH

Sulking

in hospital bed

minus left boob

Chelsea voice floats

across damp air

Look good feel better

Laughed out loud

yeah sure why not

just lost body part

could do with some 

help from my friends

Consultant surgeon

grinning Cheshire Cat

calling all nurses

behold Exhibit A

how exquisite

reconstruction

perfect shape

size matching

grieving twin

Minions purred

admiringly

Are you pleased

with it

Oscar winning

smile fixed

nodded

Only a man 

could ask that

Body now

public

property

donated to

advancement

of science

without my consent

it’s not the implant

Mrs B

Not funny any more

can’t laugh at absurdity

of life lottery

it could be you

and it is

again
