Humming A Tune*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr


 

 

CDVIII ~> Humming A Tune*

CDVIII ~> Humming A Tune*
(Opus408 ~> Exotic Exuberance)
(1)
Your date with the anesthesiologist
Proves to be too one-sided an affair.
Putting you under justifies the tryst;
With any device fitting and proper,
Per your consent on a piece of paper:
Your role is to sign on the dotted line
Not to malign their explicit design!
(2)
When all goes well, you get the I.C.U.–
Intensive Care Unit, to make it clear;
If things go wrong, off to the morgue you go
Where you are given protection and care
Until retrieved by your registered heir:
It is your job to regain consciousness
By any device that warrants success!
(3)
Humming a tune before they flush the fluid
Into your veins, helps seduce the romance
Of sweet surrender, cushions with languid
Splendor of exotic exuberance;
Drowns the in-between in irrelevance:
The procedure went well, and it’s a wrap;
If you are humming the tune, waking up!
