Almost effortlessly it appears to be
cuts the line so fine through skin and bone
homes in on the malady that's affected me
and burns it out.
Laser beams unpicking seams
I deem it best to just accept the light
lay back and relax
while the laser attacks
It's like Star Wards
tied by hospital cords
and it's scary
but interesting and fascinating
the laser comes near
closing my eyes
nobody dies who comes into the light
but the laser freezes and does not burn
which is of some concern
did not expect that turn of events.
The surgeon cements me together
and say's 'all done
nothing to worry about'
then goes off with a gun in his hand
to laser beam land?
Everything moves so fast
where once a plaster cast would have done,
everyone wants to blast you with a laser
