Ode to a Kidney

Post by Willow » Thu Jan 25, 2007 6:33 pm

So my friend who has cancer invited all of us to a party, since I can't go she asked me to write a peom about her departing kidney. I thought it was rather witty so I will share with you....

Kidney Kidney, red and bright
Churning urine through the night.
Your filters they so proudly clean,
The alcohol from my blood stream.

Kidney Kidney, round and squishy,
My renal system, evolved from a fishy.
Your presence means that I can pee,
Especially after drinking tea.

Kidney Kidney, my nephronic friend,
I fear our relationship must end.
You've grown a lump, and no longer fit,
Just another bulge for when I sit.

Kidney Kidney, so retroperitoneal,
Come share with me, one last meal.
And after surgery, to improve my health,
I'll keep you in a jar, upon my shelf.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
Dr. Seuss (1904 - 1991)

That makes something gross into something amusing. You're very talented.
You could write kids books about health maybe? :)
