Body and Soul

Every Man Has a Pope in his Belly
--Attributed to Martin Luther 

Every Prussian soldier carries his sergeant in his breast

"When I am dead and chested you will find Calais written on my heart."
--Mary Queen of Scots 


I'm sending my liver to Liverpool
My pancreas off to Peru.
My stomach and kidney
For the summer to Sydney,
But my heart I'm still saving for you.
There must be others.  Maybe I can count the vicar's wife I once met in England who said "I have to stop at the grocer's for more blood and body."
