VISIT TO THE DOCTOR

VISIT TO THE DOCTOR

(in the form of haiku—more than one)

Surgeon saw my foot,

No runs…no holes…no errors…

Can shovel snow soon!

Snow and sleet descend,

Fear reawakened to drive…

Plow trucks out in force.

Agreeable nurses,

Meeting lots of nice faces…

Doctor says…now stop.

Own car must be cleaned,

Returning as wife’s chauffeur

No more: friend, will you?

Health insurance fades,

Peddling faster daily:

Discontinuous service.

Author hands out tomes

Company and smiles exchanged…

One was sold last year.

Nervousness returns,

Cookie binges resulting…

Blood sugar testing!

Gonna miss “his” nurses,

Evening young and shapely:

Hurries back to work!

Playing “Doctor Says,”

Last word has Primary Nurse…

Wound care’s successful?

–Nine Haiku by…Jonathan Caswell
