Of don'ts and don'ts

Of don'ts and don'ts

A Poem by beyondpen

If this doesn't make you grab that first aid manual, what will :P


Scared of accidents anall that(s) flesh an blood,

Well relax now! Let all those haters worry.

I just finished my first-aid course. So?

I’ll save ya! But first tell that bugger to revive me.


That day too, I conked out for only like a minute an a half,

And they had called the ambulance already.

They said he was bleeding too much.

Big deal! All Bleeding stops eventually.

Anyway, I can be handy in an ambulance too.

Coz siren’s useless and machine gun’s out of range

But I can puke and launch my lunch

On the jerk who refuses to give way.


A picture of modesty, that despite my vast knowledge,

I understand the importance of double checking

For which I always carry my manual,

To confirm later if I did the right thing


Well I don’t intend to take All this knowledge to my grave

So I’ll close with sharing a tip with ya-

When someone’s choking on food, punch him hard in the gut.

But remember to duck, the flying food can hit your eye.

A punch in the belly. May assist? A very interesting poem. I like the energy and strong description. You create some wild and good visions with your words. Thank you for sharing the entertaining poetry.
