Response 2: Heartache


The pain’s in my chest,
Just in the last hour, it only hurts when I’m moving,
And speaking, and breathing.

Yes, I exercise daily,
At least a few times a week,
I walked to McDonalds on Sunday.

I always eat healthy,
Well, for most of my meals,
I’ll have a diet coke with a burger.

I’ve never smoked,
Only when younger – you know how it is,
Oh, and when having a drink.

No, I don’t drink,
Maybe at Christmas, christenings, funerals,
Oh, and when having a cig.

I don’t have any stress,
I work normal hours, late a few times a week,
Also, at weekends.

My father lived into his nineties,
As did his father, brother, and sister,
My mother? ‘til thirty.
I should lie down?
And relax? Do you think that it’s trouble?
Electrocardiowhat?

I’ll change my ways,
My diet, stop smoking and drinking,
Become vegetarian, OH GOD…

Indigestion…really?
