Ragtag Daily Prompt: Explosive

Free Verse:

Tummy Trouble

I felt fine at first 
then I felt the grumble 
there was a slight rumble 
then a sharp pain in the lower left 
next to my belly button 
then a gurgle 
a squeaky whistle from inside 
can anyone hear that?
the gurgle came back  
followed by a pain 
almost in the middle 
of my lower back 
which would explain 
being hunched over 
or maybe that is to 
hide the noise 
if I look will I see movement?
but if I can just get there 
without any problems 
my life won’t be marred 
by an explosion!

  1. Been there! Ate some meat that wasn’t quite right. Within a few hours I was in such pain I thought I was going to die! The explosion came in time, a major upchuck, after which the system returned to normal. Hope I don’t ever go there again. 😦

    1. This is horrible to retell but two years ago on Thanksgiving I was out to dinner with my kids. It was the year we lost my husband, their dad. Everything seemed fine, my daughter and I actually shared food. I had a margarita with lime. About 15 minutes after eating I had to use the restroom, began getting horrible pains, sweating, I really thought I was going to die. Suddenly, both ends lost everything in me! I was horrified at the mess I made. Ugh, it’s so bad. Hahaha, now I can chuckle.
