Treasured Possession.

Treasured Possession.

A Poem by Paul Bell

Bottle of Vodka, one knitting needle

We only sell knitting needles in pairs.

Of Course you do. All good things come in pairs.

Would you like a bag for life, save the planet.

A bag for life would be wonderful.


He lied, she thought.

But that was just typical of men.

She should show him the bag.

You said it was a bag for life.

But it’s not.

Look inside, you lied.


She sure didn’t feel good

Blood and blob

The Vodka did the job

Flush the lie

Now she could die


She didn’t die

Just cried

It didn’t help

Just the way she felt


Time moves on

Secret stays hidden

Tomorrow's another day

Just another day

But life is strange


He noticed she was heavily pregnant

Nice to see you’re still saving the planet

Yes, we all have to do our part

A bag for life

Treasured possession.

WHOA! This is a deep & serious ditty for you! Your sarcasm is dripping & I had to read it twice to catch all the pointy nuances. We all make choices that seem unfathomable to others. To me that's a profound thing to honor & respect, if we are to live in harmony . . . your way of bringing out such profound intensity within each everyday human interaction is unequaled! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

tragic ...no good can come form a baby in the womb, vodka and a knitting needle ... kind of end up thinking she is the bag >;/
i think you say true my friend ...
"Just cried
It didn’t help
Just the way she felt"
i can not believe a good thing comes from the destruction of a child ...your closing gives me hope tho... perhaps she has changed her mind

yes...a very tough issue ..well done poetry says i!
what a clever ending...a bag for life...and just one knitting needle, like having only one walkie-talkie...
without our better halves, what are we really....

Like this site lasting a whole day.
The Secret stays hidden... because she didn't succeed ?
