Have a Heart

I donated my heart to science
And replaced it with
A pocket watch
Gold in kind
The scientists said my heart
Failed to move to the
Federally approved beat
Despite much indoctrination on
Their part
And physical mistreatment
Kind words
Threat and reward
They grew weary and so
They locked it away
The pocket watch started to
Tick unorthodox
For how a pocket watch
Is generally inclined
But for a heart it did
Just fine
In the end however
The new organ
Gold in kind
Rejected my body
And my mind
So now I wander
with no heart and
No idea
The time
