VACATION INADVERTANT

VACATION INADVERTANT

The Poet’s ambulance ride,

Was done safely inside…

Douglas E.M.S.

Whose care was the best,

‘Though the patient fought treatment and cried.

To Milford, Mass., they flew,

A familiar E.R. going to…

Those E.M.S. women

Kept the Poet from giving

Into not making it through!

–Jonathan Caswell

NOT CONVINCED????

NOT CONVINCED?????

 

He thought he would be free

To eat stuff with M.S.G….

So he made it his goal

Of two packets whole,

Of noodles for an eating spree.

Next day he was rather wheezy,

Hard-to-breathe and a little queasy…

Down for the counts

Of every ounce

Of noodles that had gone down easy.

It generally takes days

Before he recovers normal ways…

You’d think that he’d learn

The M.S.G. stuff to spurn,

When he knows it puts him in a daze?
