PEN AND PAPER PLEASE????

PEN AND PAPER PLEASE????

She talked to a “nurse” on the phone,

Thinking the matter was done….

Then Monday Morning

Without any warning,

The arrangements were not done!

The nurse who called hadn’t gotten

The message last week verbatim…

Hadn’t gotten it at all

And called

To tell the woman a ultimatim.

The nurse decided to try

The slip to rectify…

Got on the phone,

Asked, “would she be home,”

At an earlier time to try?

KEEPING TRACK OF IT ALL

KEEPING TRACK OF IT ALL…

 

November’s almost over,

The temperature’s freezing the clover…

Whatever remains

From the last hay crop gained,

So cows may winter-over.

The calendar’s filling up fast,

With an appointment scheduling blast…

Into the New Year

For eyes, skin and ears,

Each with its medical task!

With two of us in the game,

I’ve more doctors than I can name…

Yet none for the toes

And my nail-clipping woes,

I’m sure one will be assigned, all the same!

My wife and I share the same doctor,

Not quite like both reading Betty Crocker…

With differing needs

My schedule exceeds

Just keeping the card on a locker!
