opposing views

letticia had an illness
she wanted it to end
she didn’t know its nature
she confided in a friend
the friend said see your doctor
her doc said urgi-care
and urgi-care said e.r. , girl,
go take yourself right there
parades of doctors saw her
ordered up some tests
decided that admitting her

would probably be best
they put her in a corner room
with south and east exposure
they put her in a dressing gown
with missing back enclosures

the thing kept falling off of her
the room did not have blinds
and those of you who know me now
know how this tale unwinds
for though she waited patiently
for what might be bad news
she wished she had more privacy
from those opposing views
