Styrofoam Heart

Styrofoam Heart

A Poem by Akroma

Styrofoam Heart
Slice it open from collar to hip,
Tear away limb and lip,
Never a smile and never a tear,
Never see hunger, or want, or fear.
The outside is almost all plastic,
The joints just pure elastic,
But the inside remains completely hollow,
The soul's purpose to mindlessly follow.
So string it along, bent as you will,
Forced to provide transient thrills.
And when Body Parts cease in motion
Come drink the Styrofoam Heart Potion.
