Operation anaesthesia

Screaming til my face collapsed, broken arrow’s here called Dear God she’s so beautiful, a cascading insouciance befalls Forensics yeah they’ll differ, no doubt say, it was inhumane I don’t give a fig leaf, as the daisy cutter obliterates my pain By David Kavanagh

Excuse my ignorance David i originally only knew Daisy Cutter referenced in golf terms until i researched it's actual true meaning. Poles apart funny how things become appropriated

Thanks Christopher, was gonna go with face implodes, but went with collapse, makes no difference to the unfortunate soul in agonising pain, the big gun daisy cutter was needed to stop the suffering, cheers David

This is an incredible Quatrain, David Sometimes, being stuck and unable to advance specific issues can be heartbreaking. Still, no matter the circumstances, we should keep hope and never let ourselves fall into the trap of the self-made daisy cutter to fight and work to correct it—my best hopes with the contest.

Thank you for your insight Lasaad, my intention may be slightly different, when a person is screaming in agony probably with a terminal illness, sometimes the only solution is the massive drug dose, ie daisy cutter, and personally myself, I’d rather chance it, even if it kills me so long as it stops the pain, I believe some fates are worse than death, cheers David
