Amuses and Muses (2)

by Catherine Lim

… Amuses

Said the priest: 'Beware this sinful organ'
I shall not mention it by name
It gives man so much pleasure
But causes much regret and shame!

'Though it's only a small roll of flesh
From it all mischief has sprung
I will now show you this monster!'
And the priest put out his tongue

… Muses

At death it's back to ashes
Our destiny is clear and set
Since matter is indestructible
We may have immortality yet.

But what if Hitler's particles
Blowing randomly in creation
Get mixed up with other matter
And enter a future generation?
