No Natural Thing
by Christopher Aaron Chapman

Pain is not a natural thing
It squirts and oozes through my veins
If it were natural, then it would mix
With blood and water bits by bits
Until dilute it finally came
Like ink that flows with a wandering stream

Nature's elements all must mesh
Together they form her living flesh
Not one will stand alone through time
Resisting the call to merge and bind

Unnat'ral 'tis for any such thing
As proves to resist this philosophy
Steel itself was bent and maimed
Until it stood from the harmony
It is not natural, it has no life
It cannot die, it feels no strife

And such is pain that it stands like steel
It does not mix, does not dilute
It does not care or breathe or feel
Like faiths in false gods ever resolute

Wherever it travels, as much it sows,
It never runs out, and never runs short
It's not like ideas that minds pollute,
Which spread and die when run out of juice

And isn't like fire which burns and consumes
Though it spreads like a fire it leaves no mark
And never consumes what fuels its spark
Other senses can dull, like to cheap perfume
But pain's feel remains ever shocking and stark

And so I believe it no natural thing,
For a force to exist which can never be changed,
Absorbed, diluted, or run out of fuel
Remaining pristine like a freshly cut jewel

And so if this pain will not follow the rules,
Then I shall declare that it cannot exist
And if I shout loudly, "it's not even real,"
I just might stop pounding my eye with my fist
