Your Rusty Saw

It’s seen better days,

that saw;

the metal is dulled and mottled.

(Don’t ask!)

Speckled with rust,

well used to cut through... what?

(Don’t ask).

Those teeth still have bite.

Even corroded

they’ll serve your purpose,

sawing my sanity

and severing my mind.

I'm not disappointed but I was expecting the saw to be an old meat saw and was ready for you to dismember you latest victim. Oh gosh, did I just give you an idea for another poem?
