a flutter in flickering sky;
a heavenly sparkle, helping you see
the speck in your brothers eye.
I flauntingly flurry and flirt through the air,
an attempt to annoy or allure;
fickle and flimsy, tugged by the wind,
Im confidently insecure.
My life is but fleeting and fruitlessly spent,
Im inconsequential and weak;
The world will not pause to grieve when Ive gone;
but Im wholly unique.

 rusting veins 
like the legendary
gateway to Hell.

A Mildly Gruesome TaleWhen I read a book on neurology,A Mildly Gruesome Tale7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
There were some things it didnt explain,
So, upon a whim, I decided
To purchase a human brain.
In a somewhat shady alley
Was a shady man with shady shades
Who sold me a fine and fresh specimen,
Plus a curious clamp and some oddly-shaped blades.
I snuck home with it in my jacket,
Which now has an unusual stain,
And placed on my desk, with great care,
Three hundred quid's worth of brain.
I held it in place with the curious clamp
And plunged straight into grey matter;
I wish I had put some newspaper down
I didnt expect so much splatter.
I admired the basal ganglia,
The colliculus was superior;
But as for the hippocampus,
Ive never seen anything drearier.
It sat there and did very little
But ooze and occasionally drip;
Id have saved time, had the book told me
It was neither camp nor hip.
