on hospitals

fevers, rashes, other ills
the worser off, the bigger bills
they give you tests, they give you chills
it’s odd how orderlies get their thrillsfunny-pinata-comic-hospital-lost-lot-candy-pics

coughs & hiccoughs, headaches, sneezes
some common and some rare diseases
mother mary, holy jeezes
i’ve got emphysema wheezes

crutches, bandages and braces
bed pans, bottles, wheelchair races
bloodshot eyes & purple faces
hospitals are sickly places
