Annie, Anyone?

By | 8 June 2020

Annie, anyone petrified
by loving ones, manufacturers
into placid, plastic smiles
kissed by many practitioners
who must learn to say

‘Annie, anyone, are you okay?’
Annie, anyone’s chest’s pressed
in case of cardiac arrest.
Some stormed out of the room
after a few rounds but resumed.
Old failures haunt the mind

‘Annie, anyone, stay alive.’
Annie, anyone could save you
if they care to learn how crude
one suffocates, bones protrude,
blood runs into wrong places —
as in news’ unresolved cases
‘Annie, anyone to save the day?’
