For Denise

December 3rd 1967. Christiaan Barnard performs the first human-to-human heart transplant.

I lost my heart to Christiaan,
He took it with a smile,
Then passed it on to Louis,
Who kept it for a while.
I lost my mind in Cape Town,
Whilst laid out on the rack;
I left my heart in Cape Town
And will never get it back.

Russell J Turner - December 2009
