Human Time Bomb

November 27, 2017


I feel like a time bomb 

Waiting to blow

When will this baby come?

How the fuck do I know?


I’m not made of clockwork

I’m not a machine

I’m a human, who’s pregnant

I’m elephantine!


Due dates are misleading 

In fact, they’re a fallacy

A delusion at best

They are not actuality 


My baby isn’t ‘late’

I’m not ‘overdue’

I’m pregnant with a baby

Who's not yet passed through


I’m not a fortune teller

I don’t have a wizard’s wand

I can’t magic up this baby

How else can I respond?


I am healthy and strong

And my baby is well

Please, stop your asking,

Only time will tell


We’re not in a rush

We’re not in a hurry

We’ve tried all the tricks 

And yes, we’ve had curry!


We’ll let you know

When the baby arrives

Until then, please,

Just get on with your lives!
