My heart has an extra chamber

Someone once told me that………

If you go along the arterial road

And then turn left along the vein of Hillgate

Up the aortic hill towards the market

 

You will come to an auricle

That was once used for prisoners

There you will find a secret chamber between the ventricles

 

You may find that the valves are rarely opened………

 

When they are, they have a tendency to

Make a strange sound.

Murmuring and hissing quite unnaturally.
