Sticking corks within the arteries.

They cut open the body
sticking corks within the arteries
they tore out a lung
replacing it with a balloon
and inserted a rather long straw
from the nostrils all the way down.

The artist tug upon the straw
the glue had dried
and it was time for the test
a deep breath into the straw
the balloons filled
it worked
a wonderful share it’ll be.

Could the body upon the table survive?
For how long?
Long enough to meet the life
they risked theirs for?

Thanks for reading.
