Stabbing balloons

Ever wondered why

When you stab a ballon

It screams

Just like when stabbing a person?


After her birthday

I was tasked with 

Ridding the house

Of the colorful balloons

So I took a long sharp knife

And stabbed each of them

And I couldn't stop wondering

Why do they scream

Like dying human beings

When stabbed


I couldn't stop regreting

Their loss

And couldn't stop wondering

How ironic it is

For things that bring joy

To scream in pain when stabbed

Just like human beings
