The Mark

 

I was put inside a bag

As a bus ran over me

Head smashed; torso bisected.

 

Inside a gloomy chamber

Dissected I lied.

My husband was summoned to the room

“Labia Majora were more fleshy”, he said to the expert.

 

I was labelled “UNCLAIMED”.

***

 

 

The Fate

 

Butterfly in the belly

Remained unheard to the world.

 

I cared not

To attend my clients

Without protection.

 

As he started his ‘exercise’

I farted loudly

And was rejected unpaid

With the bonus of STD[i].
