Foreign Bodies

Foreign Bodies

 

I heard somewhere –

on CBC*, I think –

that pacemakers

are computerized.

A woman said that

some hacker could

kill her

with a

click

clack

of

buttons.

My therapist

had his

replaced

5 times

because the

doors at the drug store

shorted it out.

 

When I think about

those foreign pieces

invading a body,

I am forced to admit that

it’s really not that different

from all of the

foreign bodies

I’ve been forced to tolerate

in mine.

*CBC = Canadian Brodcasting Corperation  – it is our national radio and tv station.  Lots of sciencey stuff gets talked about on this station.
