Tourniquet

2015 08 21 "Tourniquet" #OW

A tourniquet is a device used to cut off blood flow to an injured limb to preserve life.

A tourniquet looks like a strip of cloth or rubber tied around an arm or a leg above the injured area.

A tourniquet sounds like, "Ow!   Am I going to lose my leg?!"

A tourniquet smells like blood, sweat and tears.

A tourniquet feels like a tight rope cutting off your blood circulation as you go into shock.

A tourniquet tastes like blood.

You smother me like a tourniquet!
At first you were gentle as a shy coquette
But now your grip's so tight my skin's turnin' violet
I'd've loved to love you, but, gal, you'd best get!
