Born Dead

Mother’s third time unlucky but Doctor
O’Neill wasn’t having any so laid on the
healing touch and when that didn’t work
was dunked into hot then cold water
repeatedly had his chest anointed with
whiskey and so was brought back a few
weeks later to be laid at the feet of Our Lady
Queen of Heaven Mystical Rose Star of the
Sea but then he grew up and became me
whoever that may be.
