To the Veins

You know I would never

Intentionally harm you

If we don’t do this the doc says

We’re through

No more pumping for you

No future to look to

This we must do

We must attend

We must bend

To their will

And their want

I know you can’t

Take much more

One arm to go at

Veins brittle and flat

Sinuous and tough

I know they seem rough

And they won’t let you rest

But they’re doing their best

Just one more time now

We made the end somehow.
