Doctor Patient
netskyIam

Doctor, please, say what is all of this
 1
thready stuff in my stream of piss
 2
 
 
The Doctor replies in calm disdain
 3
"I shouldn't be sleeping with her again"
 4
 
 
Doctor, please tell, what is the matter
 5
with my urgent but never emptying bladder
 6
 
 
The Doctor bows low, without alarm
 7
"Check prostate. Here. Don't mind my arm"
 8
 
 
Doctor, please note that my veins varicose
 9
and my arteries throb if I blare bellicose
 10
 
 
The Doctor winds up his prognostic distaste
 11
"Your clock of life tolls half-past late"
 12
 
 
Doctor! Please!... do you think I might ...die?
 13
 
 
The Doctor like Death glares in silent reply
 14
 
 
 
 
Doctor...(oh!)... do have some kidney pie
 15
 
 
 
 
The Doctor prescribes at the dinner table
 16
"Oh...do come to my office when you are able"

Organs in pastry will buy you anything.

Lyrical, deft, and childlike commentary on an altogether grown up (sown up) subject.
